ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A large cargo-type plane crashed in Alaska early Monday morning and burst into a deadly fireball that sparked a forest fire at Denali National Park, officials said.

Park spokeswoman Kris Fister said there are fatalities, but it's unclear how many because "the plane pretty much disintegrated."

The fire is challenging responders, who don't know who owns the multi-engine aircraft.
