SAN DIEGO, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A helicopter crash at a naval base in southern California injured four crew members on board, authorities said.

The crash happened Wednesday night at North Island Naval Air Station, near San Diego, the U-T San Diego reported.

Navy spokesman Lt. Aaron Kakiel said the helicopter was an MH-60R Seahawk, and described the crash as a hard landing, injuring the four crew members aboard.

The injured were taken to a nearby hospital, but their conditions were not immediately known, Kakiel said.

Other news media reported a small fire broke out after the crash, but Kakiel did not give any details on the fire.
