One of the first units in the parade today in New Orleans East burst into flames shortly after the procession began.

The bus for the "Royal Heat" dance team caught fire on Crowder Blvd. near Hayne Blvd.

It took crews about 45 minutes to get to the scene and get the flames out so the parade could continue.

Floats, dance teams and bands detoured through a U turn lane to get around the charred remains of the bus.
