A tow truck, a car and a pickup were involved in a fiery wreck early Friday on Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach.

Occupants of the vehicles were pulled away from the flames and taken to a hospital, according to police. No other details of their condition was immediately available.

First responders found the vehicles engulfed in flames along the side of the road at about 3:20 a.m. The fire also climbed to the top of a nearby electrical pole, said Laguna Beach police Sgt. Jim Cota.
