All occupants were able to escape safely and call the fire department. Scott was quoted as saying, "Thanking God for our safety and the safety of all of those who helped put this fire out and keep us safe."

Hillary Scott is currently posting updates about the fire. On the Lady Antebellum Facebook page, Scott writes, "We had quite a few personal belongings in the back where I was asleep before evacuating the bus, one of them being my Bible. I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing."
