INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – All firefighters are OK after dealing with a less-than-common job hazard Sunday evening.

According to the Indianapolis Fire Department, one of their large engines got stuck off the road at an awkward angle while trying to park for hydrant access.

The crew was responding to an apartment fire in the 900 block of North College Avenue just after 9 p.m.

IFD said that the truck’s tires became stuck due to the wet ground. A wrecker was called to the scene in order to help remove truck.

Crews were able to get the fire under control around 9:45 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
