|Plane unloads slurry to make emergency landing|

A multi–engine plane fighting a local wildfire was forced to unload about 18,000-pounds of slurry just after taking off from Rapid City Regional Airport Friday. The airport's executive director told Black Hills FOX that the plane lost one of its engines during takeoff. The crew immediately unloaded slurry, dropping some it on the runways. That plane successfully made its emergency landing ... but while crews dealt with the situation, two commercial flights had to be diverted to Casper to refuel. The airport says there were no injuries.
