The cause of an early Sunday fire that burned at least four school buses in a Lee County lot was under investigation, authorities said.
Fire crews responded to the scene at the East Transportation Center around 4 a.m. No injuries were reported.
The Fort Myers Shores Fire Department, which responded to the scene, said at least four buses were burned in a depot where the Lee County School District parks dozens of buses. Several other buses were checked for damage.
The fire was contained as fire officials investigated. K-9 units were also on scene.
Robert Morgan, executive director of transportation for the district, told the Fort Myers News Press (http://newspr.es/17igHMm ) that other zones would be shuttled to help transport children in the east zone. "There will not be a disruption," Morgan said.
The area was roped off and the remaining buses would be checked out, Morgan said. He added that the school district would determine the next steps after it receives the Lee County Sheriff's Office initial appraisal of the incident.
"Right now we've sanitized the area and we're glad there were no injuries," Morgan told the News Press.
Authorities were expected back at the lot Monday to continue the investigation.
No further information was immediately released.
