Fire Rips Through Seven School Buses in Brooklyn

NY Daily News - July 14, 2017


A fire tore through a school bus depot in Brooklyn early Thursday, torching seven school buses, authorities said.

The fire broke out inside the depot on Strickland Ave. near E. 59th St. in Mill Basin about 3:15 a.m.

The fire was put out within an hour, but not before the school buses — which were all parked near each other — were burned beyond repair.

No injuries were reported.

FDNY Fire Marshals were determining what sparked the blaze, although an NYPD source said the fire seemed suspicious.
