As we speak, international pop star Ricky Martin is belting out some of his hits at the Laredo Energy Arena. He arrived in Laredo to news from his crew that one of his buses had caught fire. It's our top story at ten and a Pro 8 News exclusive. You can see those inside the bus scrambling to save the precious items to put on a concert before they burned. The scary moments happened for Ricky Martin's crew, only hours after having arrived into Laredo. This video provided to us by a viewer on the scene at the L.E.A., captures the moments one of Ricky Martin's tour buses caught fire.
Witnesses tell us they noticed smoke coming out of the bus and was quickly evacuated. At that moment, members of the crew and staff opened up the luggage compartments and quickly rushed to salvage what they could, everything from clothes and, as we're told, even instruments.
Staffers with fire extinguishers showed up shortly after the fire started. No one was reportedly hurt in the incident. This is Ricky Martin's second time performing in the Gateway City.
