Bus fire destroys Eli Young Band’s tour bus

“We spent six great years living and traveling in our bus. It was gone in a matter of minutes.” Eli Young member Jon Jones stated. The tour bus caught fire right outside of Topeka, KS. early Wednesday, January 18th and proved to be a total loss.  They took to social media writing “Our bus caught fire tonight right outside of Topeka, KS. We’ve lost more than a bus here. There are memories and possessions that we can’t replace! It’s really sad to see her go. We’re just happy that our driver, Randy, is safe!” The fire started in the rear of the bus near the engine while the bus driver had stopped to sleep for the night. After he heard the fire alarm he quickly grabbed a guitar and evacuated the bus.
