Killeen ISD officials are asking the Texas Department of Transportation to assist in the investigation of a fire that destroyed a school bus Friday morning.

The district wants to do everything it can to understand the cause of the fire in order to prevent future such incidents, Superintendent John Craft said.

The bus caught fire just after 7 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of the H-E-B store at 1101 West Stan Schlueter Loop.

No students were aboard at the time.

The driver was not injured.

Officials think the bus will be declared a total loss.
