GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A helicopter whose pilot was practicing approaches crashed on the roof of a hospital Thursday, catching fire moments after the two people on board escaped unharmed, a fire official said.

No patients were aboard the helicopter in the crash around 11 a.m. at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital, Fire Chief John VanSolkema said. The chopper landed on its side and caught fire, he said.

The crash sent thick, black smoke over downtown and forced the evacuation of patients from the building.
