The burning bus

After the fireball in that last Pretender episode, I thought I should provide a link to the burning bus. This happened a few days ago in the next suburb, only a few blocks away from our house, and I missed it.

Fireballs seem unlikely (and a trope really made fun of in the Simpsons), and I'm not sure this was one--though the article says it was--but dude, you can hardly see the bus for flames, and the heat was intense.

And the name of the spokesman for the fire service I almost read as Jarod. :-P I'd say "too much Pretender" but I've nowhere near reached that point.
