Authorities believe alcohol was a factor in a southeast Houston wreck involving a fire truck.

It happened around 9:30pm Thursday on Broadway at Cypress, as a fire truck was responding to an emergency call.

Police say the fire truck was traveling southbound on Broadway when a woman driving a Chevy Malibu going westbound on Cypress ran a stop sign. The fire truck then sideswiped the woman's car.

No one was injured in the wreck, but the woman was arrested under suspicion of drinking and driving.

There was just minor damage to the bumper of the fire truck, and significant damage to the car.
