Warren — A fire department vehicle was involved in a crash early Thursday afternoon involving at least one other vehicle, fire officials said.

The crash occurred around 12:30 p.m. on Schoenherr just south of 12 Mile, Fire Chief David Frederick said.

“Our battalion chief is on the scene,” Frederick said. “Our rescue squad that was involved is drivable and neither of our firefighters that were on the rescue squad were hurt.”

At least one other vehicle was involved in the crash but no one appears to have been injured, Frederick said.

“A vehicle did run into our ambulance,” he said. “Preliminary reports are that nobody was injured but we did send a second squad over there to make sure.”

Rescue squad vehicles serve as emergency transportation such as ambulances, Frederick said. The vehicle involved was not carrying a patient when the crash occurred.

Frederick said the cause of the crash remains unclear. Police are on the scene and will handle the investigation, he said.
