BIOLA, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – An Army National Guard helicopter made an emergency landing in Biola on Thursday.

The helicopter made the emergency landing in the area of 5th Street and G Street in Biola. The area surrounding the emergency landing site is residential, with a North Central Fire Protection District fire station nearby.

According to National Guard officials, the aircraft was a UH-60 Blackhawk. Officials say the reason for the emergency landing was due to an indicator light that had come on and the pilots followed procedure by landing the helicopter in a safe and unoccupied area.

Pilots considered landing at Biola Pershing Elementary School, but there were students outside at the time.

The helicopter was repaired and was able to take off shortly afterward and land safely at the Air National Guard base at Fresno Yosemite International.

No injuries were reported.
