Police and fire officials in Shawnee, Oklahoma, are working to figure out who is setting fire to Salvation Army busses. Firefighters responded to two bus fires on Saturday.

Officials with the charity said the busses were used to take children to and from after-school programs.

"They were just in total disbelief. They don't understand why would somebody take their vehicle," Salvation Army Captain Phillip Canning said.

The first fire was set early Saturday morning. The second was set in the evening. Canning said it appears that the arsonist tried to use the first aid kit as fuel for the second fire.

The Salvation Army hopes anyone with information comes forward.
