A military plane crashed in Arizona near the Mexico border on Wednesday night.
The crash, which involved an F-16 Fighting Falcon with the 162nd Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard, occurred during a night training mission near the border town of Douglas.
According to the 162nd Wing's official Facebook page, there was one person on board the aircraft.
"...Teams of rescue personnel were dispatched to the scene near Douglas Municipal Airport," 2nd Lt. Lacey L. Roberts said in a news release. "At this time there is still no additional information on the pilot."
Aviation and Cochise County officials told The Arizona Republic newspaper that the crash sparked a brush fire that is burning right next to a high-pressure gas line.
