The good times came to a screeching halt early Monday morning as a party bus went up in flames in Dallas.

Dallas Fire-Rescue responded to the blaze near South Polk Street and Grayson Drive around 1:25 a.m. and found the Ford party bus engulfed in flames.

The driver told investigators that they were traveling down South Polk Street when the bus began shaking and its lights started flashing. The driver stopped the bus, and all occupants made their way to the street.

After everyone was out, the bus began to smoke before erupting into flames.

The flames threatened the fences of two nearby properties, and the heat from the fire affected a nearby power line pole.

“Some of our equipment on the power pole did have some heat damage; it was replaced that night (early morning hours),” Oncor told The Dallas Express.

Oncor did not report any power outages associated with this incident.

Crews extinguished the flames relatively quickly, and there were no reported injuries.

The fire completely destroyed the bus, but firefighters were able to extinguish the flames on the fences before any homes were in danger.

Dallas Fire-Rescue listed the fire as accidental and attributed it to an unknown mechanical failure in the bus.
