A vehicle driving up Highway One, a main route between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv,  caught on fire earlier on Wednesday morning. United Hatzala personnel who were alerted and called to the scene evacuated the passengers in the vehicle, who suffer from disabilities and could not have evacuated from the burning vehicle independently.

None were injured in the incident, and fire department forces have put out the fire.
