ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - Military officials say a military fighter drone has crashed near Roswell.

Roswell fire officials say they were told one person was on board the jet.

Holloman Air Force Base spokesman Tom Fuller says the QF-4 jet went down Wednesday morning but he was unable to immediately release any other details.

KOB-TV reports there is live ammunition aboard the plane, and rescue crews were being asked to approach the crash site with caution.

The QF-4 drone is used as a target for weapons testing. It can be flown by remote control or with a pilot.
