A woman was arrested after an ambulance stolen from a Dallas fire station Sunday afternoon was finally stopped in Bossier City, Louisiana, fire officials say.

The ambulance was stolen from Fire Station 53 on John West Road in Dallas' Eastwood Hills neighborhood, Dallas police said.

A Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesperson said medics noticed the vehicle was missing at about 4:17 p.m. when they tried to respond to a call, only to find the ambulance was gone.

Authorities tracked the path of the ambulance east through Lindale -- approximately 14 miles north of Tyler -- before Louisiana State Police stopped it in Bossier City, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue.

Police pulled the ambulance over and arrested the woman who was driving it, fire officials said.

Dallas Fire-Rescue said it would investigate the circumstances surrounding the theft and determine what "corrective actions and/or disciplinary measures" would be taken.
