Just two days after fire damaged buses used by the Northwestern School District in Albion, the school is resolving the transportation issues.

The Northwestern School District was on a two hour delay this morning because of the weekend fire but the students won't need to worry about that tomorrow.

The school Superintendent declined to go on camera, but tells us that despite being on a delay, all students were still picked up this morning.

Three replacement buses were brought in.

The fire is not expected to change transportation for the students going forward.

Three buses were damaged Saturday night when a fire started around 6:30.

The school buses were parked in a garage and the garage was also damaged.

Fire Chief Scott Hyde of the Albion Volunteer Fire Department says he believes there is at least 300-thousand dollars worth of damage and cleanup expenses.

The Girard School District had a similar fire a few years back.

Student Transportation of America owns the buses used by both districts.

Fire Chief Hyde says there are no suspicious circumstances but they will still hold off on an official cause for right now
