Tribute Quartet's Bus Destroyed in Fire
Friday, January 21, at approximately 5 o'clock in the evening, Tribute was en route to Texarkana, AR by way of I-30 between Dallas, TX and Texarkana. At mile marker 150, the rear passenger tire blew and caught fire. After pulling over to the shoulder, attempts were made to extinguish the fire with no avail. They were able to clear all sound equipment, product and very little clothes before the entire bus, including all suit, ties, shirts, personal items, etc., was engulfed in flames.
All who were aboard the bus, escaped unharmed.
As of 7:30 PM, the Mount Vernon Fire Dept. was still fighting flames.
Tribute would like to thank all of Mount Vernon's emergency departments for their hard work and care. They would also like to thank all who have prayed and delivered well wishes. Your prayers are envied.
Please keep watching Tribute Quartet's schedule for more information. As of now, all appearances, starting Jan. 27, 2011, will be honored.
