Four people complained of a smoke inhalation after a school bus carrying the Golden Valley High School girls’ volleyball team from Santa Clarita was destroyed in a freeway fire near Acton.
The flames were reported Monday on the southbound Antelope Valley (14) Freeway near just south of Red Rover Mine Road, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The bus was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, but everyone was off the bus, said a fire dispatcher.
Four people complained of respiratory issues but they declined to be taken to a hospital, the dispatcher said.
It wasn’t immediately clear how many students were on board the bus or why it caught fire. One report said the team was returning from an athletic event in Palmdale.
