THUNDER BAY -- Provincial police have responded to a reported plane crash between Atikokan and Ignace.

OPP received the report of a plane crash in the bush just before noon Thursday. The plane went down about 50 kilometres southeast of Ignace, between Sand Lake and Seseganaga Lake.

The pilot of the aircraft contacted the OPP’s communication centre by satellite phone and advised police that he had encountered engine failure. The two occupants of the plane were uninjured as a result of the crash.

The OPP’s helicopter unit, which was used to search for a missing boater on the Kaministiquia River, was re-directed to help with rescue efforts at the scene of the crash.

The joint rescue coordination centre, along with the Transport Canada Safety Board, are now investigating the cause of the crash.

The type of plane that crashed is unknown at this time.

Police say further details will be made public as they become available.
