An ambulance in Mt. Rainier, Md. suddenly burst into flames and exploded Wednesday afternoon.

The explosion at about 2:30 p.m. was strong enough to blow the roof of the vehicle.

No one was inside the ambulance at the time.

It was parked in a lot at 38th St. and Rhode Island Ave. -- very close to a fire station. However, the crew from that station was away on another call at the time, according to STATter911.com

An engine crew from Bladensburg Volunteer Fire Department put out the flames. Chief Randy Kuenzli shot video of the fire, according to STATter911.com.
