But This Downtown DART Bus Fire Had Nothing At All to Do With a Television Series ...

We've already seen a phony downtown fire this morning. But this one at left, captured moments ago by a good Friend of Unfair Park on Main Street not far from Old Red, is quite real. Or it was: Though the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department Active Incidents page shows this to be a work-in-progress, Dallas Area Rapid Transit spokesman Morgan Lyons says the DART bus that caught fire a short time ago is no longer, well, on fire.

Lyons says the blaze broke out at the rear of the bus, near the engine compartment. Initially, Lyons said there were no injuries reported. He just called back to say "two people are now claiming to be injured." Updates forthcoming.
