(WMC-TV) - An Ohio boys basketball team is fortunate that no one was hurt after its bus caught fire while en route to a tournament at Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis.

According to Cincy Prep Hoops Report, the bus caught fire and burned to its frame Wednesday afternoon about two hours north of Memphis.

The Cincinnati team was on its way to play in a holiday tournament in Memphis.

Fortunately, no one was injured, but the team did lose lots of equipment and personal effects.

Aiken High School head coach Leon Ellison told Cincy Prep Hoops Report that the team was still able to play in the tournament.
