BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (CNN) – Competing universities have offered to help a college baseball team that lost its equipment when the team bus caught fire.

The bus carrying the Jackson State University baseball team caught fire Monday on Interstate 20 near Birmingham, Alabama. Everyone inside the bus made it out unharmed.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State University have pledged to donate equipment to Jackson State so the players can get ready for their upcoming baseball tournament.

The cause of the bus fire remains under investigation.
