BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) -

A 50-passenger bus with Dolly's Party Bus service is totaled after it caught fire on Interstate 380 just south of the I-380/Hwy. 20 interchange Thursday evening.

A Black Hawk County deputy says the driver was on his way to pick up clients going southbound on I-380 when he noticed smoke and pulled off to the side of the road.

Gil Schultz drove past the bus around 6:30 p.m. and captured the flames and the smoke on video. Schultz said the fire engulfed the vehicle in a matter of minutes.

Black Hawk County confirms that only the driver was on the bus and he was not injured.

They suspect the air conditioning unit in the rear of the bus was the cause of the fire.
