ACTON, Calif. —  A school bus carrying a girls volleyball team from Golden Valley High School caught fire on a freeway Monday night, CBS Los Angeles reports.

The girls were on their way back to Santa Clarita from the match in Palmdale at around 9 p.m.

The back of the bus filled with smoke, the driver pulled over and everyone ran off the bus, the station says.

Volleyball player Paola Rios said, “A lot of people’s stuff got burned. We were barely able to save anything.”
