ADAMS RUN, SC (WCSC) -

A bus full of high school athletes narrowly escaped a fire Tuesday evening in Adams Run.

The Beaufort High School varsity girls volleyball team was returning from a match against Ashley Ridge when their bus caught fire in the 8600-block of Highway 17.

Head Coach Corrie Frohnapfel said the team noticed an odd smell on the bus as traveled along the roadway, before a passerby flagged down the bus.

"I heard one of the other coaches say, ‘somebody said that we are on fire,'" she said.  "So we just got the girls off as quickly as possible and the girls responded wonderfully."

Frohnapfel said about 30 seconds after vacating the bus, it become engulfed in flames.

Thirty-two people were on-board at the time.  Nobody was injured.

Officials with the St. Paul's Fire Department say that the bus' brakes may have caught on fire.
