AVON, Conn. (AP) — Firefighters responding to a call in Connecticut ended up saving a couple's wedding day.

In a Facebook post, the Avon Volunteer Fire Department says they were dispatched to a church for a bus fire on Saturday.

When they arrived at the scene, firefighters found a trolley bus with an engine compartment fire. The bus driver already had extinguished the fire, but a wedding party was left without a ride to the reception.

Firefighters responded by offering the bride and groom a lift.

"Our crews offered the bride and groom a ride to their reception in Avon and they graciously accepted," the fire department said in a statement.

Facebook photos show the couple all smiles as they rode in the firetruck. The department says they made it to their reception on time.
