Downs Helicopter In Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq -- A U.S. commander says a military helicopter crashed Friday in Iraq after coming under enemy fire.

One soldier was killed and another wounded when the chopper went down near Fallujah.

After the crash, American soldiers blocked off streets and searched shops and homes in Fallujah as helicopters circled above. Soldiers also sealed off the crash site and won't let reporters approach.

A witness told the Associated Press Television News that the helicopter burst into flames after crashing. But he didn't know why it went down.
