Sarasota, Florida -- A school bus fire in Sarasota caused delays on I-75 near State Road 681 late Wednesday morning and, thankfully, no one was injured.

Authorities say the recently-inspected school bus was on its way from the transportation depot to Oak Park School when the driver smelled smoke and pulled over just before it caught fire.

No students were on the bus at the time and the two transportation employees on the bus at the time were able to get out uninjured.

The northbound lanes of I-75 were reopened about an hour later after firefighters were able to put out the fire.
