There are no survivors after a small single-engine plane crashed Monday morning near Rocker, according to Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff John Walsh.
Authorities are now trying to determine how many people were on board the plane that crashed west of Butte, Walsh said at around 12:30 p.m.
Further details are expected to be released at a press conference later today.
The plane crash was reported this morning. A police scanner report indicated that a plane was spiraling out of control with flames showing.
Emergency crews, including search and rescue, police and fire departments, are at the scene.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
