MILWAUKEE – Traffic was backed up on a portion of Highway 45 northbound near Mayfair Road Tuesday morning due to a bus fire.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff says the driver of a coach bus for Lamers called 9-1-1 shortly before 6 a.m Tuesday. He was the only person on the bus at the time and was able to get out safely.

Fire crews were on scene to put out the flames. At one point the two right lanes of northbound 45 were closed because of the fire.
