Minnesota Bus Driver Battles Flames

A Minnesota school bus driver is being called a hero this morning for doing the right thing and possibly saving some lives.

Alfred Lewis was driving four special needs students near Minneapolis on Thursday morning when a heater on the bus began to smoke.

He pulled over and got the kids, including two in wheelchairs and a nurse, off the bus just as the heater burst into flames.

Lewis even went after the flames with a fire extinguisher but wasn't able to put them out.

Luckily, everyone got away safely and another bus quickly arrived to take the students to school.
