A Hall County medical vehicle was involved in a wreck Sunday night while responding to a house fire on Apache Circle near Gainesville State College.
The medical unit struck the rear of a vehicle that stopped suddenly on Mundy Mill Road near the entrance to the Walmart store in Oakwood, Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell said.
Six children and two adults in the vehicle that was struck were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center to be examined for injuries. There were no apparent serious injuries, Kimbrell said.
The two people in the medical vehicle were not injured in the wreck, which happened about 6 p.m.
The emergency vehicle was en route to a fire in the 3200 block of Apache Circle.
The fire caused about $40,000 damage to the home, estimated in value at $130,000, Kimbrell said.
When firefighters arrived, heavy flames were visible in the split-level home, which was 1,800 to 2,000 square feet in size, the chief said.
No one was injured in the fire, which is still under investigation.
