No one was injured when a school bus caught on fire Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters were sent to eastbound I-80 near the Giles Road exit around 2:00 and found the bus engulfed in flames on the shoulder of the road.

There were no students on board and the driver was not injured.  

It's not known what caused the fire.  The black smoke was visible for several miles and eastbound traffic was backed up for more than an hour.
