Ark City church bus catches fire

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Forty Ark City boys and girls escaped injury this week when their church bus caught fire.

It happened Wednesday evening as the services wrapped up at Hillcrest Bible Baptist Church.

40 kids between the ages of 16 and 12 were waiting to be bussed home when the bus erupted in flames.

In the panic, the kids on board didn't think about going out the emergency door at the back of the bus. They all crowded toward the front of the bus where the fire was located.

"I just kept praying, God please help these kids," said Ana Saxton, the youth pastor's wife.

No one on the bus was hurt.
