A hotel employee sprung into action and called the bus driver and the fire department after spotting the fiery bus, according to the video. It was an “off” day for the star, so it appears that nobody was on board the bus during the time of the incident.
The items rescued from the flames had significant sentimental value to the singer. Jewel thanked the fast-acting firefighters and showed some love to her bus driver as well. In a moment of gratitude, she called the driver a “hero for saving the vintage gear,” according to Page Six. (RELATED: Machine Gun Kelly’s Tour Bus Defaced With A Penis And A Homophobic Slur)
