2 Kids Injured In School Bus Fire On 101 Freeway

Authorities said two third-graders have been injured in a school bus fire, which is now causing major delays on the 101 Freeway near Universal City.

Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says firefighters responded Wednesday morning to reports of the burning school on the busy Los Angeles freeway.

He says crews extinguished the raging fire in about 11 minutes.

Scott says the two students, who suffered minor smoke inhalation, are in stable condition and will be taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Scott did not know what sparked the flames.

The students were from the Flory Academy of Sciences & Technology and were headed to the California Science Center.
