"The Williamsburg Fire Department worked through the night to put out the fire and hot spots within the structure", the Virginia police said in a statement.

The crash happened Sunday around 4:40 p.m.in the 1100 block of Settlement Drive.

As of 9pm search and rescue efforts are still underway, but at least one fatality has been confirmed.

Reportedly they were still trying to locate and identify the pilot of the helicopter. Anaya said the victim was not the pilot, and it was unknown whether the victim was a man or woman.

The pilot of the helicopter is still unaccounted for, and emergency workers can not access the crash scene due to instability in the structure.

Leslie said he witnessed the helicopter crash into the building.

"Just want to say thanks to all of the emergency personnel who came out and kept everybody safe and also just praying for those who lost everything in the fire", said Chris Robertson.

Firefighters from James City County, Williamsburg and York County fought the blaze, which continued to smolder into the evening.

People who live in the area described hearing a low-flying helicopter before a loud explosion and fire.

The crash occurred near the campus of the College of William and Mary, prompting an alert from the university, although the university stressed that it did not occur on William and Mary property.

The NTSB will announce the probable cause of the crash after conducting its investigation.

State police and other investigators are likely to be at the site for the next several days, Anaya said.
