SUNSET BEACH, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A U.S. Marine helicopter made an emergency landing after striking a power line on the North Shore of Oahu late Tuesday, officials said.

A U.S. Military official said around 7:45 p.m., a UH-1Y, belonging to III Marine Expeditionary Force, struck a wire line in the Sunset Beach area during a routine training.

Honolulu police were on scene on Wednesday morning, blocking access near Comsat Road, which leads to Camp Paumalu, a Girl Scout camp. That's where the helicopter went down. 

The Hawaiian Electric Company said the line was damaged, but there were no power outages.

Four crew members were on board at the time of the incident. All were reported safe without injury.

A complete inspection will be performed on the helicopter to assess damages.

The incident remains under investigation.
