I Prevail bus unexpectedly catches on fire!

An unlucky bump in the road for I Prevail as their van has unexpectedly caught on fire. Luckily no one was injured during the incident and it also seems that all their musical equipment wasn’t caught up in the flames. You can check out some of the bands Instagram‘s posts below!

Woke up to the bus being engulfed in flames. Everyone is okay, but we unfortunately lost a lot of stuff.
