From DNA Info and News.Yahoo.com: By Mathew Katz and Patrick Hedlund Manhattan — A group of children escaped a school bus that caught fire on Seventh Avenue near Penn Station Tuesday morning. FDNY reported that fire crews responded to the fire outside 460 Seventh Ave. and West 35th Street after receiving reports of heavy smoke in the area about 8:30 a.m. A witness working near the incident saw bus riders getting off the bus before flames engulfed the vehicle.
