GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) - Officials say a woman in labor rode to the hospital in a fire engine after her vehicle and an ambulance got stuck in the snow.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman Pete Piringer said paramedics were called to Duhart Road in Germantown early Saturday for a woman in labor. The vehicle the woman was riding in got stuck, but they made it home.

Piringer says an ambulance responded, but it broke a snow chain and got stuck too. He says a plow and a military all-wheel drive truck got the woman out and she was taken to the hospital in a fire engine.

Holy Cross Health spokesperson Yolanda Gaskins says the woman was taken to Holy Cross Germantown Hospital, but the baby had not been born by early evening.
