On the morning of April 16, 2015, singer Hillary Scott’s tour bus caught on fire. Hillary Scott, her husband, the tour manager and the driver were all evacuated safely. Michael Barnett, witness to the fire on Interstate 30 northeast of Dallas, took video of the fire while slowly approaching the bus, while smoke and flames came out from the rear. The tour manager said that the bus stopped after one of the back tires blew out and it burst into flames after everyone was evacuated. Hillary Scott posted a photo on social media saying that the fire destroyed everything in the bus’s back lounge, except her Bible.
“Thanking God for our safety and the safety of all those who helped put this fire out and kept us safe” she said.
