SPRINGFIELD — A small plane landed in a field this evening not far from a local airport.
The plane touched down around 5 p.m. in the area of Blee and West Jackson roads, near Ohio 72, according to a witness.
There were no reports of injuries, and it’s not clear why the pilot was not able to reach the nearby Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport at 1251 W. Blee Road four miles south of the city of Springfield.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Springfield Post confirmed troopers were on the scene, but only would say the incident was under investigation.

NEW CARLISLE —
Ohio 571 remains closed in New Carlisle after a grain silo collapse sent 10,000 tons of corn onto the roadway late Sunday evening.
Crews worked delicately Tuesday to prevent any damage to other nearby buildings surrounded by corn, said New Carlisle Fire Chief Steven Trusty.
"Give us the time, because it's not going to go away in a day,” Trusty said. "It's going to be a very slow process."
Sheriff’s deputies are treating the scene at Miami Valley Feed and Grain Company as a crime scene until criminal activity is ruled out.
“(We’re) considering it to be a crime scene until proven otherwise,” said Maj. Christopher Clark with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. “We really don’t know what happened to cause the collapse, so we are going to be here to secure the scene.”
Clark said the scene is “very dangerous” and the county is planning to station deputies on the scene around the clock. Anyone that goes past barricades could be subject to charges.
Trusty said the corn is being moved onto the property of the grain silo owner for insurance purposes, however once insurance issues are addressed it will be the property owner’s responsibility for removal.
Ohio 571 is expected to be shut down until through at least today, according to the Ohio Department of Transportation.
ODOT suggested detour is Ohio 201 to U.S. 40, then to Ohio 235, according to a media release.
ODOT said the road closure times could change depending on the progress of the cleanup.
Crews were initially called to Miami Valley Feed & Grain at 880 W. Jefferson St. around 11:40 p.m. on reports of an explosion.
After a preliminary investigation, it was determined that one silo collapsed, rather than exploded, and partially damaged another building as well as caused 10,000 tons of corn to cover Ohio 571.
“What residents heard when they thought they heard explosions were the transformers blowing when the debris hit them”, said Steve Trusty, Chief of New Carlisle Fire Department.
There were not any employees on site at the time.
The silo collapse took out at least three power poles and power lines, which caused a brief power outage that has since been restored to all area residents.

Anchorage, Alaska — A 7.9 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Alaska forced families to evacuate their homes last night around 4:30 a.m. local time.
News Center 7’s Lauren Clark spoke with a Tipp City native who is now living in Anchorage and felt the effects of the quake in her home.
“The bed started to move a little bit, and I looked over at my doorway and the door was swinging,” said Miami Valley native Katherine Krupa.
Krupa moved to Alaska three years ago with her husband Joe, who is a lieutenant colonel in the US Army from Centerville.
When my husband said, "Oh, we're going to Alaska, I just never thought about earthquakes,” Krupa said.
Krupa has since learned that earthquakes are a regular occurrence in Alaska, which is located in the active Ring of Fire that surrounds the Pacific Ocean.
The Krupas home was not damaged, but friends of theirs were forced to leave their home and seek higher ground after tsunami warnings.
