MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Montgomery officials are breathing a sigh of relief this afternoon after reports of a plane crash around Hope Hull turned out to be false alarms.
Montgomery County Sheriff D-T- Marshall said his department sent up helicopters to investigate sometime before noon, but nothing was found.
Several people called the department saying they heard loud explosions and saw smoke.
Marshall said a fighter jet had been in the area and they're speculating it created a sonic boom and the smoke people saw probably came from a man who was burning brush in the area.
He also said Danley Field airport did not report having any aircraft dropping from radar.
