MANSFIELD, La. (WTVF) — Country artist Neal McCoy's tour bus caught fire in Mansfield, La. Saturday morning.

McCoy began a Facebook Live video around 6:30 a.m. to announce what had happened. In the video, he shows his tour bus, called "Old Glory," ablaze as fire crews arrive on scene.

McCoy ensured viewers that everybody made it out of the bus and nobody was injured in the incident.

"Anybody that's watching. Any...friends and family, everybody's okay," McCoy said. "It's just a financial loss."

In a second Facebook Live video, McCoy shows fire crews as they work to contain the blazing bus. The country artist points out that the trailer storing their equipment and most of the equipment inside were largely spared.

Once firefighters managed to put the flames out and everything had settled, in a third and final Facebook Live video, McCoy recited the Pledge of Allegiance with Old Glory and all of the people there.
