Members of Casper Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps Escape Bus Fire
Members of the Casper Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps escaped injury Friday, after their bus caught fire along Interstate 25 while enroute to a rehearsal in Cheyenne. Officials with the organization say all the students and staff were able to get off the bus without injury, but some of their luggage was destroyed by the fire, which was reportedly contained to the rear of the bus.
A replacement bus was dispatched to take the group’s members to Cheyenne. Once the Corps members arrive in Cheyenne, organizers say they will assess what was lost in the fire, and help get replacement items for those affected. According to the group’s Facebook page, the team members were in good spirits, and looking forward to completing the trip to Cheyenne.
