Relient K Guys Survive Bus Fire

Speaking of almost-tragic fires this week, I just found out yesterday (from my mom) that Relient K’s bus caught on fire while they were traveling from the Creation festival to Illinois. Thiessen and another passenger on the bus noticed the fire, alerted the bus driver, and woke up the rest of the band and crew and escaped without any tragedies. The bus was destroyed along with a lot of merch and personal items.

We are really thankful that no one was hurt.

Here are some pictures on Jon Schneck’s blog.
