The Normal Fire Department estimates $285,000 damage to four buses occurred in an early morning fire at the Unit 5 bus garage.
Firefighters were called at about 2:30 to the Eagle Road garage and found one bus on fire with flames spreading to another bus. Three of the buses are considered total losses. Investigators are looking for the cause but don’t suspect criminal activity.
Unit 5 says morning routes were not affected.
