MARION, SC (WIS) -

A bus filled with bicyclists got quite the scare Sunday when their bus caught fire on U.S. 76 near Marion.

Jeff Honeycutt told WIS the bus was able to pull over just before the fire erupted.

Marion Rural Fire helped extinguish the blaze and the South Carolina Highway Patrol helped with traffic, authorities said.

Honeycutt said the group was returning to the Midlands from the 2013 Bike MS: Breakaway to the Beach event, which ended at Sunset Beach on Sunday.

No injuries were reported.
