BEAR VALLEY SPRINGS, California  — We are getting information into the 23ABC newsroom about a possible crash of a hot air balloon in Bear Valley Springs at the Annual Firecracker Balloon Festival.

County fire was called out to reports of a balloon into a tree off Rolling Oak Drive. Initial reports indicated there were three people at the scene.

We talked to a representative with the festival who would only tell us that a balloon "landed" close to a tree. 

The flights are done for the day and she said they'll be back in the skies Saturday morning at 7 a.m.
