PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — A Prince George's County fire truck overturned Sunday while on its way to a call, officials said.

The Prince George's County Fire Department's public information officer tweeted the photo of the truck overturned around 12 p.m. Sunday. 

Truck 29 and its crew were responding to the report of a fire on Hil Mar Drive in District Heights when it overturned at Silver Hill Road and Barnabas Road. Officials said there weren't any injures, and no one was transported following the incident.

"Approx 11:38 a.m. #pgfd Truck 29 was responding to the report of a fire on Hil Mar Dr in District Heights when it overturned at Silver Hill Rd. & St. Barnabas Rd. There are no injuries or transports to report," the tweet said.

In November, a truck carrying mangoes overturned on Rockville Pike on I-495.

The overturned tractor-trailer carrying mangoes caused some road closures near Rockville Pike. Police said the overturned truck shut down the right two lanes on the outer loop of I-495 just past I-270 near Rockville Pike.

One person was evaluated for a non-life threatening injury following the crash.

There were no reported hazmat situations as a result of the incident.

Officials said because the truck was on its side, a heavy-duty wrecker had to bring it to its wheels before crews could clear the scene.
