Lightning Strikes Ambulance, Emergency Vehicle Catches Fire

Fires have been a recurring concern for communities around the world throughout history, wreaking devastation on lives and property.

Fires can occur in different kinds of situations, including private residences, commercial buildings, industrial sites, and even natural surroundings. While fire is an important tool in human civilization, the uncontrolled spread of flames can have disastrous results.

Initiatives for fire safety education and training strive to provide persons with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent fires and respond efficiently in the event of an emergency. Understanding fire threats, knowing how to use fire extinguishers, and having a well-defined evacuation strategy can all help to save lives and reduce damage during fires.


Recently, an ambulance parked near a church caught fire after being struck by lightning in Calauag, Quezon.

According to the Bureau of Fire Protection, the ambulance was parked near the church while the driver was out looking for spare parts when the horrible tragedy happened. The ambulance was engulfed in flames after a powerful lightning strike, leading neighboring residents to rush to the scene and provide a helping hand.

Witnesses and local residents bravely joined forces to extinguish the fire, stopping it from spreading and causing harm to anyone in the area. Their quick and coordinated efforts were effective, as they were able to put out the fire before it caused further damage.
