BONITA SPRINGS - A privately owned school bus caught fire Wednesday closing the northbound lanes of I-75 near Bonita Beach Road.

The only person aboard was the driver and he made it off safely. 

Crews put out the flames quickly but traffic was backed up for miles on the northbound side and moved very slowly on the southbound side.
