The fire wasn't all that big, but the Sumner was still shut to let a tow truck pull the flame-broiled bus out

Shortly before 7:30 p.m. , on the airport side. State Police reports the fire was quickly put out and there were no injuries. The tunnel was re-opened around 7:40 p.m.

I do.

Several.

The 424, 434, and 450. The 117 also makes one early morning run through the tunnel.

Saw them drive it out of the tunnel around 7:40 slowly, but under its own power. So any fire couldn't have been that bad.

One of the later reports said it wasn't a fire, but a hot engine that set off the fire suppression system on the bus.
