Fire Destroys, Damages Saginaw County School Buses

Posted: Updated:

SAGINAW TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Saginaw County say electrical problems caused a blaze that destroyed two school buses and damaged two more.

WSGW-AM reports Monday that damage to the four Saginaw Intermediate School District buses from the Saturday night fire is estimated at $300,000. The cause stemmed from trouble with a system designed to prevent diesel-powered engines from freezing.

A district spokeswoman says the damage hasn't affected transportation service.

The buses were at the Saginaw Township Community School District garage.
