GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Fire officials in Greenville County say around two dozen children were taken to the hospital to be checked out for heat-related injuries after the air conditioning broke on their bus.

Multiple news outlets report the children were traveling from Atlanta to Virginia Sunday around 7 p.m. when one person on the bus became unconscious on I-85 in Greenville County. All the children on the bus were transported to an area hospital due to the heat, officials said. EMS officials and firefighters assisted in transporting the children from the interstate.

Crews blocked off all I-85 northbound traffic and the ramp leading from Augusta Road to the Interstate for a period of time. It has since reopened.
