WASHINGTON – Four Fort Campbell soldiers have been hospitalized after the UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter in which they were traveling late Tuesday morning crashed and caught fire on the Kentucky Army post, according to an Army statement.

Three of the soldiers were airlifted to a local hospital and the fourth was taken to an Army hospital for treatment following the incident at about 11 a.m., according to hospital and Army officials.

The soldiers injured in the crash — assigned to the 101st Airborne Division — were quickly extracted from the helicopter by other 101st soldiers who responded after witnessing the wreck while conducting training nearby, Fort Campbell officials said. Those soldiers, with the division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, and post firefighters extinguished the fire.
