BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A Jackson State University bus carrying the men's baseball team caught fire while traveling through Birmingham on Interstate 20/59 Monday, ABC 33/40 has learned.

According to police, everyone on board escaped the burning bus unharmed, but they will have to find a new ride as the bus was completely destroyed in the fire. It is unknown at this time what caused the blaze.

The team lost all of its equipment in the blaze, forcing them to cancel tomorrow's road game against Savannah St. in Georgia and board a bus back home to Mississippi.

Bruce Thomas snapped some incredible photos of the fire and crews working to extinguish the blaze. See the photo gallery above or click here.

Alabama State Troopers are investigating the incident.
