Bus fire hits too close to home for North Bay reporter

In this Behind the Scenes feature, Village Media journalist Chris Dawson talks about why this particular news story was no ordinary assignment

On Sunday night, Village Media's BayToday reported exclusive details about a scary moment for members of the North Bay U18 Trappers hockey team.

After evacuating their chartered bus because of a blown tire, players and coaches watched from the side of Highway 11 as flames engulfed the vehicle. 

For BayToday reporter Chris Dawson, the breaking story hit especially close to home: his son plays for the Trappers.

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