CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — The Marine Corps says two crew members have been killed in a helicopter crash in a training area at Camp Pendleton in Southern California.

A Marine statement says an AH-1 Cobra belonging to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing went down at about 1 p.m. Monday.

The statement says the two personnel aboard were pronounced dead by emergency responders.

A fire is burning at the site in the southeast corner of the base, near the community of Fallbrook, and firefighters are working to contain it.
