Lady Antebellum bus catches fire on I-30

The Lady Antebellum tour bus caught fire on Interstate 30 in Garland on Thursday morning.

The flames broke out just before 9 a.m. as the bus was heading westbound over Lake Ray Hubbard.

The band's publicist told FOX 4 the driver noticed smoke coming from the rear wheel well or engine area. Viewer photos and video from SKY 4 showed damage across the back of the vehicle.

Lady Antebellum is in town for the Academy of Country Music Awards at AT&T Stadium.

Singer Hillary Scott posted on Instagram that she, her husband, her tour manager and the driver all made it off safely.

This particular bus was rented for their Dallas trip. The regular bus is being prepped for tour, the band's publicist said.

Later in the day Scott tweeted a photo and wrote "Everything in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames....except my bible."

The burned bus was towed away and Scott and her crew eventually made it unscathed to the Four Seasons in Las Colinas.

The fire caused major traffic delays on I-30 for most of the morning.
