ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Flights have resumed at the Aspen airport in western Colorado now that the wreckage from a fatal jet crash has been removed from the runway.

An airport official says private and commercial flights resumed Tuesday morning after airlines worked out details on staffing and operations.

Two men from Mexico were being treated for serious injuries and another was dead after the fiery plane crash Sunday. The airport services a popular ski resort town where wealthy visitors shuttle in and out on private flights.

Sheriff's spokesman Alex Burchetta says the plane went off the right side of the runway, flipped over and burst into flames while landing.
