DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Fire officials say at least a dozen people have been injured after a crash that involved a bus, an ambulance and another vehicle just east of Atlanta.

Authorities say that the wreck happened around 6 a.m. Tuesday and that the bus crashed into a building.

DeKalb County fire Capt. Eric Jackson tells WSB-TV (http://bit.ly/1NIcdyM) that at least 12 people were injured. Video from WSB-TV showed the intersection completely blocked by several ambulances and emergency vehicles as traffic was detoured through a parking lot.

Jackson tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1m8cPrp) that the crash involved the bus, a "non-emergency transport" ambulance and a private vehicle. He says officials don't know how the vehicles collided at the intersection.

Further information on the injuries was not immediately available
