Kearsarge Regional removes propane-fueled buses out of caution after explosion
NEW LONDON, N.H. (AP) — A school district and a business that provides school bus transportation say they are removing the district's propane-fueled buses from service out of an abundance of caution as the state Fire Marshal's Office investigates what led to an explosion and fire that critically injured two bus company workers.
The two men who suffered serious burns were performing a state-required inspection on a propane-powered bus at the building in Bradford on Thursday.
The Kearsarge Regional School District and Student Transportation of America said the two were the only people in the building at the time.
The cause of the explosion has not been determined.
