“I was sitting by the dog at my desk and we heard a loud boom. We both jumped up. I thought we were having an earthquake,” Wetzler said. “I went outside and you could see the flames billowing.”
Wetzler said he saw an RV on fire, and that a school bus was dropping children off nearby at the time of the incident. The scene is just a few blocks away from Jacobs Road Elementary School.
