A group of eight senior citizens are safe this afternoon thanks to some good Samaritans who stopped to help.
The bus they were riding in caught fire.
Norm Thompson was working at Karray's Café in Bellevue when the bus pulled up in the parking lot with smoke and flames coming out of the engine.
There was trouble getting one of the wheelchair bound passengers off the bus, so Thompson sprung into action.
“The lift was still up and they couldn't get her off so her, and picked her up, and put her on the ground," he said.
Justin Baker and Brian Lowther were driving by when they saw the fire.
They stopped to help too.
“Helped and proceeded to get her Hover-Round off the bus and get her into the Hover-Round so we could get her away from it," said Lowther.
Witnesses say just moments later, the fire consumed the entire bus.
The bus is a total loss, but all eight of the passengers made it out unharmed.
“Everybody is safe, and at the end of the day, that's all that matters," Thompson said.
“I'm happy that we could do what we did to help, and we stepped away from there, and nobody's hurt," Baker said.
The seniors were able to take shelter inside the nearby café while the Bellevue Fire Department put the fire out.
A new bus came and picked them up.
