SEATTLE, Washington - A news helicopter for KOMO-TV has crashed outside its station near the Seattle Space Needle and the station said at least 2 people were killed.

The station says the copter was apparently coming in for a landing on its rooftop Tuesday morning when it possibly hit the side of the building and went down, hitting several vehicles on Broad Street.

The copter and cars exploded in flames. CBS affiliate KIRO reports at least two cars were on fire.

People in the area reported seeing a huge cloud of smoke as firefighters and police responded.
