Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh): A fire broke out in a parked ambulance on Saturday in Jabalpur. There were three filled oxygen cylinders in the ambulance.

At the premises of the medical college, a 108 ambulance was parked. Suddenly, smoke started emanating from it, and in no time, it caught fire. As the fire started spreading, the fire department was informed.

The fire department arrived at the medical premises shortly after, but by then, the vehicle had already been completely engulfed in flames. It was fortunate that the oxygen cylinders kept inside the ambulance were removed promptly. If they had caught fire, it could have resulted in a major explosion.
