The Bell UH-1B helicopter crashed around 5 p.m., according to a statement from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The chopper, known as a Huey, crashed onto a country road, Logan County Office of Emergency Management Deputy Director Sonya Porter told CNN.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found that the helicopter had gone up in flames and extinguished the fire, Bryant said.
“I ran as fast as I could and I went under the crash barrier and I went up to the helicopter,” she told WSAZ. “But the fire was just so hot, so intense, and that guy didn’t come from there.”
After the crash, one of the owners showed up at the scene, Bryant told WSAZ, though he did not name the owner.
Logan County is near the border with Kentucky.
The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident, the FAA said.
