Fire sparks on tour bus near Hoover Dam

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- A tour bus caught on fire in Southern Nevada and dozens of people were on board.

It caught fire near the Hoover Dam Monday afternoon.  The blaze closed the bridge to the dam for hours.

The driver spotted smoke and tried to put out the fire with an extinguisher, but the flames quickly burned out of control.

Sixty-one tourists were on the bus. Amazingly no one was hurt.
