Caught on cam: Fiery crash

The Federal Aviation Administration was on the scene in Clinton, Massachusetts Sunday, looking into why a hot air balloon made a crash landing.

The balloon was trying to land in the residential area when it struck power lines and caught fire.

"It was going pretty low, and I thought it was going to land just over the hill," said Erick Peterson, who witnessed the crash.

The balloon ultimately crashed into power lines, creating two explosions in a dramatic scene Saturday night.

"You could see the operator was trying to pump up the propane, but it just didn't go up," said Dennis MacDonald.

Five people were injured, three were taken to nearby hospitals with burn injuries.
