US chopper on fire in Okinawa

From NHK

Japanese Defense Ministry officials say they've been notified by the US military that a CH-53 helicopter caught fire after it landed near the US military's Northern Training Area on Okinawa Island late Wednesday afternoon. The US Marines disclosed that the fire broke out from inside the aircraft. Police say that 7 people were on board and that no one was injured.

Local firefighters say they were notified that a US military helicopter had crashed, and black smoke was rising in the Takae district shortly past 5:30 PM.

US military officials say the helicopter was based at the Marine Corps Futenma Air Station. They say no one was injured in the incident, but the helicopter is on fire.

Okinawa prefectural police say there have been no reports of injury.

The CH-53 is a large helicopter used mainly to transport personnel. It crashed on a university campus adjacent to Futenma Air Station in 2004.
