DELTA TOWNSHIP - Arson is suspected in a fire that destroyed two Grand Ledge School buses Friday morning and damaged a third.
The fire was reported at around 5 o'clock in the morning at the school's bus garage on Nixon road in Delta Township.

The chief of the Delta Township Fire Department says arson is the most likely cause considering it was raining heavily, the two buses that caught fire were 300 feet apart, and the buses had not been used in nearly 2 days because of school break. There is also evidence that some sort of fuel was used. There are no current suspects, but the investigation is ongoing.

Along with the two buses that were destroyed, a third bus was damaged as well as the door to the bus garage. The fire chief estimates $250,000 worth of damages.
