A large cargo-type plane has crashed at Denali National Park in Alaska, sparking a forest fire.

A park spokesperson says there are fatalities but it's unclear how many because the plane "disintegrated."

The owner of the multi-engine aircraft is unknown. The National Transportation Safety Board says a large number of transport planes operate in Alaska. Military officials say none of theirs were involved.
