PHOENIX (AP) - A hot-air balloon made a hard landing in north Phoenix, but the Fire Department says there are no serious injuries.

Fire Capt. Larry Subervi says about a half-dozen people were on board the balloon when it landed in brush after a rapid descent Monday morning.

He says firefighters at the scene reported that the balloon’s occupants have only minor scratches and that nobody is being transported to a hospital.

Subveri says it’s not immediately known what caused the rapid descent.
