Everyone got off safely when a bus carrying Houston students home from a band competition caught fire, but the bus and their belongings were destroyed.

Louisiana State Police say the fire shut down the Interstate 210 bridge westbound at Lake Charles
for about nearly five hours Sunday.

Pershing Middle School band members were returning from a competition in Orlando, Fla.

The blaze destroyed the bus, the students' belongings, the band's instruments and equipment and the band's first-place trophy.
