CEDAR FALLS -- Authorities are still trying to figure out what caused a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Black Hawk County bus to catch fire on the University of Northern Iowa campus Thursday.

The fire started at 7:10 a.m. on Ohio Street. Seven passengers and the driver were able to get off the bus unharmed, but the bus is destroyed.

The cause is under investigation, but Cedar Falls Fire Chief John Schilling says it was probably a mechanical issue.
