No one was injured when a fire destroyed an ambulance in Hale County early Sunday morning, according to a Facebook post from an emergency responder there.

In a Sunday afternoon post to social media, an employee of the Hale County Emergency Medical Service said there were no patients in the truck when a fire broke out in the ambulance.

The crew manning the truck was also able to escape injury, but the ambulance itself was lost to the fire.

The employee said the vehicle that burned was one of the EMS' primary ambulances, but they have a backup truck they will use until the burned unit can be replaced.

It was not immediately clear how the fire broke out in the ambulance.
