"Our thoughts and our prayers go out to the family members," Margotta told reporters.

Honolulu Fire Department Capt. Earle Kealoha said firefighters responded to a call of a downed aircraft at 3:34 p.m. But when they arrived four minutes later, federal fire crews already had the fire under control.

The Army said it was investigating the accident.

The helicopter belongs to the 25th Combat Aviation Brigade, part of the 25th Infantry Division. The brigade is preparing for a 12-month deployment to Iraq scheduled to begin October.
