2 youths set girl's hair on fire on a school bus

CEDAR CITY (AP) — Two youths reportedly set a girl's hair on fire on a school bus, police said.

"(The girl) said she was on the school bus and could smell her hair burning," Detective Sgt. Jerry Womack said. "She reached up and could feel her hair burning."

Womack said she was able to put the flame out, and she reported the incident to the bus driver.

Womack said the bus was parked in front of Cedar Middle School when the incident allegedly took place this past week.

He said a school resource officer will conduct an investigation, and the school will take action whether or not the police file charges.
