The fire broke out at about 7 a.m., spewing thick black smoke into the sky near Fry Road.
The bus was less than 30 minutes into the nearly nine hour drive to Monterrey, Mexico. That's when a rear tire locked up, causing a fire, according to Captain Terry Thurman with Harris County Toll Road Authority's Incident Management.
