KESHENA, WI (WTAQ) - Fire crews were busy late Saturday afternoon when they responded to a bus fire at the Menominee Public Transit Building in Keshena.

Crews were called around 5:30 p.m. and upon arrival found a transit bus inside the storage building fully engulfed in flames.

Officials were able to prevent the fire from spreading to other buses inside the building.

Fire Chief Pat Roberts tells FOX 11 the bus is a total loss. The building's interior also had minor smoke and flame damage.

The tribal transit system connects people to the reservation’s three main villages and the casino. Bus service was not disrupted because of the fire.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
