Bus Fire on the Interstate

By Chief of Department
May 27, 2022

On Friday, May 27th, 2022, at 5:15 PM, the Purchase & West Harrison Fire Departments were dispatched to a reported bus fire on Interstate 684 Northbound in the area of Lake St. Upon arrival, members observed a fire in the rear of a bus on the right shoulder. Engine 241 arrived and stretched their 1 ¾ hose line to begin extinguishment efforts. Engine 240 arrived shortly after, supplied additional water to Engine 241 and assisted with overhaul while Ladder 53 and Engine 265 provided traffic control. The fire was quickly brought under control in 15 minutes. Luckily, the operator and children on-board the bus were able to safely evacuate and were uninjured. Due to an extended time for an additional private bus to arrive, weather conditions and the children being in a precarious position on the side of the highway during rush hour a request was made for a Liberty Lines Bus from Westchester County. Once the bus arrived, the children & chaperones were then safely transferred and transported to the Purchase Fire Department for shelter until a private bus would arrive. All units cleared at 7:15 PM.

We would like to thank 60 Control and Liberty Lines for their assistance throughout the incident.

Units On-Scene: Purchase Cars 2411, 2412, Engines 240 & 241, Ladder 53.
West Harrison: Cars 2502, 2504, Engine 265. New York State Police.
