Bus fire reported on I-395 at 7th Street SW

UPDATE: The charter bus is currently sitting just off of southbound 7th Street SW just before the I-395 overpass. The District police reported no injuries and no traffic being slowed down due to the incident. As of 8:35 a.m., the bus is still sitting there, and the D.C. Fire Department truck just left the scene (with their exit visible in real time via Trafficland's traffic cameras. Technology!). The police couldn't confirm whether the bus caught fire, or smoke came from the engine, or what precisely happened.

ORIGINAL POST: A bus caught fire on 7th Street SW at 395 on the southbound side, the District police confirmed. The fire was called in at 7:30 a.m. Metro reported that it was not one of their buses and said it was a commuter bus. More information as we get it.

Someone needs to tell VDOT that plowing exits and and lanes on I66E at Nutley and the Beltway starting at 500am is one of the dumbest ideas ever. Duh you think these morons would have been aware of these problems and resolved them before 500am when the rush hour starts. No we will wait until rush hour starts and take care of them. They should all be terminated and run through snow blowers. No not fired but executed! And any survivors from VDOT send back to Richmond.
