Guam - Just as a joint investigation continues on a fire that burned down the Yona Bus Satellite Station, the Department of Public Works is working to relocate the two school buses that caught fire to the DPW compound.

DPW director Carl Dominguez said, "We want the buses down here so our mechanics can go through those buses to see what can be salvaged and we're hoping we can get a couple of buses up and running from parts we can possibly salvage off these two burnt buses."

Dominguez adds DPW will build a temporary office and resume operations at the Yona Bus Satellite Station in time for the new school year. He says the bid to purchase new buses opens tomorrow and should all go according to plan, will arrive by the end of the year. As for the investigation, Dominguez was informed by GFD that a report will be ready by the end of week however no suspects have been identified just yet.
