CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A Greyhound bus caught fire after spinning its tires on a patch of snow and ice.

It happened on the exit ramp to E. 9th Street from I-90 eastbound in Cleveland.

The bus got stuck in snow and ice and spun its tires as it tried to get out.

One of the bus's rear tires caught fire.

A Cleveland Police officer saw the fire and alerted the driver. All eight passengers and two drivers were safely evacuated. They waited in police cruisers until Greyhound sent a new bus.

The Cleveland Fire Department responded and quickly put out the fire. The firetruck also got stuck in the snow.

The exit ramp was closed until crews could remove the bus.
