DOZENS of secondary school students had to be evacuated from a bus this morning after it caught fire outside Letterkenny.
A number of fire tenders rushed to the scene of the incident which occurred close to Mountain Top.
The bus, which belongs to Marley’s coaches, caught fire just before 8.30 am.

The students were evacuated off the coach before the blaze spread, however, there were no reports of injuries.
The children, who were travelling from Creeslough to Loreto Convent and St Eunan’s College, were transferred to school on other buses a short-time later.
Gardai and the emergency services were at the scene to re-direct traffic. The road has since re-opened.
