A US Air Force C-130 overshot the runway at Iraq's Taji Airbase at 10:10 p.m. local time on Monday and crashed into a wall, causing a small fire and structural damage, the official military spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve said in a Monday statement.

"The airfield fire and rescue team were on the scene within 4 minutes, extinguished the fire, and assisted an evacuation of the plane. Four Service Members on the plane sustained non-life-threatening injuries and are being treated at Camp Taji’s medical facility," the statement notes.

​​"Enemy activity is not suspected; the incident remains under investigation. The quick actions of the airfield crash, fire and rescue team helped patients, and limited damage to equipment and infrastructure,” the statement continues.

The C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed by US aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin.

Camp Taji is a military installation used by coalition forces and located about 17 miles north of the city of Baghdad.
