A tour bus for country star Toby Keith caught fire on an Indiana highway early Monday morning.

It happened on Interstate 65 in Lebanon, Ind., about a half hour northwest of Indianapolis.

Authorities say the driver looked in a side mirror and saw flames shooting out of the rear of the bus. Shortly after, the bus lost power.

Toby Keith was not on board. The bus was reportedly carrying his back-up singers and technicians.

Everyone got out safely and no one was hurt.

The crew was reportedly heading back to Nashville from a Sunday night concert in Chicago.

Damage is estimated at $250,000. The cause is under investigation.
