LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say two people escaped serious injury in a small twin-engine aircraft crash at North Las Vegas Airport.

Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the Aerostar aircraft skidded off a runway and caught fire shortly after 4 p.m., but two people aboard were able to get away before flames engulfed the cabin.

It wasn't immediately clear whether they received other injuries.

North Las Vegas Fire Capt. Cedric Williams says fire crews were responding to the fire at the busy general aviation airport a little under 8 miles northwest of downtown Las Vegas.

KLAS-TV showed aerial footage of firefighters and rescue crews working to douse flames.
