Plane Crashes In Aspen, CO., Crews Respond

Posted: Updated:

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Emergency crews are responding to a fiery plane crash at Aspen Airport in western Colorado.

Thomas Wright, a dispatcher with the Pitkin County Sheriff's Office, confirmed the plane crashed Sunday afternoon but said he could not release any more details until a spokesman is contacted.

The size of the plane was not immediately clear. Nor was it clear how many people were on board.

Attempts by The Associated Press to reach an airport spokesman were unsuccessful.

Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, is about 100 miles southwest of Denver.
