Neither children nor the driver were injured Thursday afternoon when a school bus carrying Taylor Elementary School students caught fire while traveling in the 5100 block of Waterlevel Highway.

Bradley sheriff spokesman Ed Ramsey said the students and driver got safely out of the vehicle and another bus came to take them home.

Ramsey said initial reports say the fire was the result of a mechanical problem on the bus.
