Randy Houser lost everything, but escaped unharmed when a bus fire broke out just after noon on March 9, 2012. Everyone got out safely, but they all lost their gear, clothes and personal belongings when the back end of the bus went up in a blaze that sent smoke billowing through the cabin. Houser let fans follow the action on Twitter. “It’s just scary as hell,” Houser told GAC-TV later. “You think you’re safe on a vehicle like this, and then you’re sitting there and all of a sudden your stuff is on fire.”
