BEHIND THE SCENES: Bus fire hit close to home for Village Media reporter

Village Media journalist Chris Dawson talks about why this particular news story was no ordinary assignment

A hockey team in North Bay endured a scary moment last weekend when the chartered bus they were riding in burst into flames.

Thankfully, players and coaches were off the bus by the time the fire erupted.

BayToday, a sister site of ThoroldToday, was the first to report the story. For local journalist Chris Dawson, the breaking news hit especially close to home: his son plays for the Trappers.

Dawson was a recent guest on Village Media's "Behind the Scenes."
