Toby Keith's tour bus goes up in flames


Boone County, IN (WQOW) - Fresh off his Saturday night appearance at Country Fest in Cadott, Toby Keith's tour bus went up in flames Monday.  

The country singer was not on the bus when it happened. The  burning bus did shut down one southbound lane of Interstate 65 near Indianapolis early Monday morning.

Authorities say the driver looked in a side mirror and saw flames shooting out of the rear. The bus was carrying his backup singers and technicians. Everyone got off safely.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The crew was reportedly heading back to Nashville from a Sunday night concert in Chicago.
