Eminem Tour Bus Catches Fire

Friction from a flat tire caused a bus with the Eminem-headlined Anger Management Tour to catch fire on a highway Sunday, fire officials said.

Pittsfield Township Fire Sgt. John Maguire said the bus was fully engulfed in flames by the time his department got to the scene on Interstate 94 in Washtenaw County at about 1:30 p.m.

Maguire said the bus driver, who was not injured, was alone on the bus when the fire started. The bus – apparently reserved for Eminem’s managers – was on its way to meet the tour at a scheduled performance, he said.

The Anger Management Tour wrapped up Sunday night at the Palace in Auburn Hills.

Three fire departments worked to extinguish the blaze and crews remained on the scene for about three hours, the Pittsfield Township Department of Public Safety said in a statement. Hazmat crews were required to clean up about 150 gallons of diesel fuel that leaked from the bus’s tank.
