Police and firefighters responded to a report of a downed plane on the Big Island Friday, but upon arriving at the scene, learned it was a false alarm.
According to initial reports, a plane had gone down around 9:30 a.m. near the 39 mile marker on Saddle Road, which is near the military's Pohakuloa Training Area.
Emergency responders rushed to the area and determined that a passerby had mistaken the routine artillery training and smoke as a plane crash. No injuries occurred.
