School bus destroyed in fire at Ransom Middle

A school bus was destroyed in a fire at Ransom Middle School in Escambia County today.
Firefighters got several calls from neighbors around 12:30 this afternoon.
   
When they got there, they found a bus on fire in a field behind the school.
   
Superintendent Malcolm Thomas says the field is used by the school's agriculture program to grow hay and feed livestock.
"I believe a group of AG students came down yesterday to work on the field. The bus was stuck and they left it."

The State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
