STAUNTON, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police say a charter bus driver was uninjured after the bus caught fire on Interstate 81 in Augusta County.

State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says no one else was on the bus when it caught fire shortly before 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Geller says the driver detected problems with the bus and pulled onto the shoulder in the northbound lanes. The driver left the bus as the fire spread.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. State Police didn’t identify the driver or the name of the bus company.
