Dramatic scene unfolds at school bus fire

Posted:
(CNN) -- It was a scary morning for a school bus driver in San Antonio, TX.

His bus caught on fire just before he had to pick up students.

School officials say the driver was en route to pick up the students when he smelled something.

He pulled over and noticed something burning near the engine and grabbed a fire extinguisher.

However, the flames had spread too quickly.

He was given another bus to run his route.

School district officials believe the cause is a mechanical failure due to an oil leak.
