BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - Colombian authorities say a bus carrying young people home from a church service caught fire on a street in a northern city and at least 32 children are dead.

Officials in the city of Fundacion say the death toll could rise. They estimate about 50 people were on the bus when it burst into flames Sunday and say some people have been taken to hospitals for treatment.

Mayor Luz Estella Duran of the city about 465 miles north of Bogota tells RCN television news that investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.

Officials say the bus was carrying mostly young people who had attended a religious service at an evangelical Christian church.
