TRENTON, NY - If it wasn't out of service before, it definitely is now.

A school bus caught fire on Route 12 in the Town of Trenton late Tuesday morning.

The driver noticed light smoke coming from the vehicle and pulled into a rest area. That's when the bus caught fire.

The driver was not injured, but the fire caused a lot of damage.

The bus was an older model and had been taken out of service. It was on its way to Leonard Bus Sales in Rome to be evaluated for possible resale.

No children were present at the time of the fire.
