I'll post as I learn more.
Durham owns the buses and we lease them.
UPDATE: Looks like the T&G just got this. Preliminary estimate of $500,000 damage. Deputy Chief Sullivan has a great quote:
“Buses do not just spontaneously combust.”
UPDATE II: sorry, other mailbox!
From the School Committee update:
"6 mid-size special education buses and 1 wheelchair bus owned by Durham School Services were set on fire and are a complete loss. Other vehicles may be vandalized...There will be no impact on summer school. We utilize Durham on a limited basis for special education transportation during the summer.Durham will work under tight timelines to purchase or relocate vehicles for the start of the school year."
