A school bus caught fire on Monday afternoon with students on board in Dearborn.

We're told the bus overheated which led to the fire. Chopper 7 was over the bus on eastbound Ford Rd. just west of Evergreen. Students could be seen standing outside near the bus while crews were on scene.

Dearborn schools says there were about 40 students on the bus from high school. All were transported to another bus and taken home.

One student, whose dad thought he was on the bus, used the opportunity to try and get a new car.
