Authorities are at the scene of a single engine plane crash near Rocker, west of Butte.
Few details are known at this time. A police scanner report within the half hour indicated that a plane was spiraling out of control with flames showing.
Reporter Laurel Staples confirms that the plane crashed in a rough terrain area. She sent these pictures back from the scene just before noon as crews are arriving.
An ambulance, search and rescue crews and fire trucks are at the scene.
Butte-Silver Bow Police Captain Doug Conway is expected to provide more details soon. We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
