METRO bus catches fire on North Freeway

A METRO bus caught fire along the North Freeway at Tidwell during rush hour this morning. It's unclear if the bus had any passengers onboard. The HOV lane was closed and that brought the traffic already on the HOV lane to a halt. The bus fire also caused major delays on the northbound and southbound lanes of the North Freeway.

The METRO bus was finally towed from the scene around 7am.
