A private plane made a forced landing in a field behind a Pasadena fire station, officials said Friday.

The pilot of the single-engine AC-11 airplane apparently had problems about 7:30 p.m. near Ellington Airport.

The pilot was forced to set the plane down in a field along the 17200 block of Middlebrook, officials said.

"There were no homes struck and no injuries on the ground. He did a good job," said Vance Mitchell, a Pasadena police spokesman.

There were no reports of injuries from the plane. Mitchell didn't know if the pilot was the only person aboard at the time.

Pasadena police will secure the airplane until federal authorities arrive to conduct an investigation, Mitchell said.
