A Fire Department ambulance and fire engine responding to a call in Koreatown collided at a busy intersection Tuesday, resulting in minor injuries, a city fire official said.

The ambulance was going north on South Western Avenue, and the engine was going east on Venice Boulevard when they crashed at the intersection at 4:32 p.m.

The ambulance flipped on its side, and the paramedics suffered scrapes and bruises.

Both were responding to a report of smoke, which did not turn out to be a serious fire.
