LANCASTER COUNTY — The Federal Aviation Administration will investigate a small aircraft crash that occurred Monday morning at Smoketown Airport in Lancaster County.

No one was injured in the crash, which involved a helicopter, officials told FOX43’s Grace Griffaton.

The helicopter reportedly landed on its right side, damaging the craft and causing a fluid leak at the scene. Local EMS units, police, and fire departments responded.

Firefighters are still on the scene for spill control.

There were two people on board — a student taking a flying lesson and an instructor, officials said.

The helicopter was reportedly landing when something went wrong, causing the crash.

FOX43 will have more information as it becomes available.
