Sanctus Real Bus Fire!

Just this past weekend, the band, Sanctus Real survived a fire that destroyed their tour bus. According to a statement from the band, the bus was riding along the Pennsylvania Turnpike around 4 a.m. Sunday when the driver noticed flames in the side mirror. The band was headed toward Mitchellville, Maryland where a performance was scheduled. Band members Matt Hammitt, Chris Rohman, Dan Gartley, Pete Prevost, and Mark Graalman as well the band's family, including four children, quickly evacuated the bus, resulting in no injuries. The abrupt exit did not allow the bus occupants to grab any personal belongings before the fire became out of control. "As a result, everything was destroyed in the fire, from clothing to laptops, cell phones, and wallets," said a statement.  A fund has been set up for people who want to help.  Donations accepted here.
