POTOMAC, Md. (WUSA) - Four firefighters are said to be o.k. after the ambulance they were riding in crashed in Potomac this Friday morning.

Captain Oscar Garcia, spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue, says the ambulance had just refueled after dropping off a patient at Shady Grove Hospital and was heading back to Station 3 when for some reason, the ambulance went off the road and down a hill into a ravine on Falls Road near Liberty Lane.

Garcia says the four firefighters suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Suburban Hospital as a precaution.

Montgomery County Police are working to determine what caused the crash. A separate investigation will also be conducted by Montgomery County Fire and Rescue.

Right now Falls Road is shut down between Tuckerman Lane and Montrose Road. Garcia says the roadway will likely remain closed until at least 6:00 a.m. Montgomery County Police advise drivers to use Seven Locks Road to avoid the area.
