Multiple school buses were damaged by a fire at the Conroe ISD bus barn Wednesday morning.
Fire crews responded to reports of smoke emerging from the bus barn located off Gladstell Road around 1:15 a.m.
Firefighters say they arrived at the scene within four minutes of receiving the initial alarm, which helped to minimize the damage done to the bus barn.
Fire officials said they could see the flames from I-45 as they approached the scene.
Conroe fire officials say five of about 60 buses were damaged by the flames.
District officials said normally, the bus barn holds about 100 buses that are used to transport Conroe ISD students.
Despite the fire, school officials said Conroe students would still get to school on time Wednesday morning.
Fire officials said there is no reason to believe the fire is suspicious.
"No one was inside of the facility at the time of the fire," said Lisa Meeks, director of communications for Conroe ISD. "The gates to the facility close at 6 p.m. Arson has been ruled out, but he case of the fire is still under investigation."
The bus in which the fire originated had a history of electrical problems and repairs, according to the Conroe Fire Department.
As recently as Tuesday, that bus was reported to have smoke coming from the dash area. The bus was on track for further evaluation and repair at the time of the fire.
