I realize it must have been a witness who said, presumably in Spanish, that the meteor grew to a size "comparable to that of a bus," but without indicating a distance, a bus can be any size at all, zero to infinity, so the statement is nonsensical. The only information it adds to the story is that the witness is as mentally handicapped as the reporter who quoted him.
(If you have trouble grasping this, consider the apparent size of a school bus seen with you nose pressed into the side of the bus vs. its apparent size sitting on the moon.)
