An investigation is underway in Seattle into a news helicopter crash that killed two people near the Space Needle. 

Kyle Moore with the Seattle Fire Department says the two bodies found inside the helicopter are still at the crash scene. 

He added that the NTSB will be involved in the investigation and should be at the scene within hours.Moore said when fire crews arrived, it was tough for them to see exactly what they had on their hands because of the amount of smoke on the scene.  The chopper hit at least two vehicles when it went down. 

Moore remarked that fire crews quickly extinguished the flames and prevented the fuel from spreading further.  He said there are still many questions about the chain of events in the incident, including what caused the chopper to go down. (Metro Networks Inc.)
