SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say two men were killed when a helicopter crashed north of Salt Lake City Tuesday.

The helicopter hit the roof of a two-story building about 2 p.m. in an industrial area in North Salt Lake.

Police Chief Craig Black says the two men in the helicopter died at the scene, but the building was empty and no one was hurt on the ground.

Ardian Fazliu works nearby and said he saw the helicopter break up in the air. Fazliu said he was about 200 yards away and saw the front of the helicopter hit the building's roof.

Black says it's not yet clear where the helicopter was going or what it was doing.

North Salt Lake is a town of 17,000 people about eight miles from Salt Lake City.
