Crews respond to plane crash in Colorado

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 on 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 reporters to reach an airport spokesman were unsuccessful.

Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, is about 100 miles south-west of Denver.
