Near Dallas, as many as 24 people were killed when a bus carrying elderly
evacuees fleeing Rita caught fire.
The bus fire took place in a traffic jam on Interstate 45 near Wilmer,
southeast of Dallas. The vehicle was rocked by explosions and engulfed in
flames that reduced it to a blackened, burned-out shell.
Early indications were that the bus caught fire because of mechanical
problems, then passengers' oxygen tanks started exploding, Dallas County
Sheriff's Department spokesman Don Peritz said.
