Tour bus carrying country music star Lee Brice catches on fire in Phoenix suburb; no injuries
MESA, Arizona (AP) ' A tour bus carrying country music star Lee Brice caught on fire outside a restaurant in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, forcing the musician and his crew to flee.
KNXV-TV (http://bit.ly/z2VYTG ) reports that the group had been on the road for nine hours when the bus caught on fire Saturday. The "Love Like Crazy" singer had a concert in Mesa.
Mesa firefighter Shaun Denman says crews worked quickly to keep the fire from spreading to a trailer behind the bus. He says the flames were "about as high as the roof of the building."
Brice says he and a few other people were asleep at the time. He says they left the bus "and within of minutes it was in flames."
He says he's thankful no one was hurt.
