The Air Force says a military cargo plane crashed Wednesday with four people on board at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage. Air Force Capt. Uriah Orland says the conditions of the four on board was not immediately known. When asked if there were deaths, he did not answer.

The plane was from the 3rd Wing, based at Elmendorf, and Orland said it was on a local training run.

Orland says first responders were still on scene more than two hours after the 6:14 p.m. crash.

He says more information will be released later Wednesday.
