A fire truck and ambulance collided as they were headed to a building fire Friday night, sending two paramedics to the hospital.

Around 8 p.m., two Baltimore City Fire Department units — Engine Company 13 and Medic 15 — were responding to a fire in the 700 block of Lennox St. when they smashed into each other at the intersection of West North Ave. and Park Ave., according to a statement from Chief Kevin Cartwright, a spokesman for the fire department.

One medic was sent to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center; another was taken to Mercy Medical Center with "less serious injuries," Cartwright said.

The two vehicles were moderately damaged in the crash, he said. The cause of the crash is being investigated.
