A brand-new, propane-powered Bluebird school bus went up in a ball of flame Sunday just feet from a propane fueling tank at the U-Haul building on Ringgold Road in East Ridge.

No one was injured, but the front end of the 71-passenger bus was destroyed by the fire, the origin of which was unknown Sunday evening. East Ridge public information officers were unavailable for comment Sunday.
