A remote stretch of a Florida Panhandle highway is closed after an Air Force drone crashed near the area.

Tyndall Air Force Base says the QF-4 drone crashed on takeoff early Wednesday. No one was injured in the crash.

The Air Force closed Highway 98 west of Panama City and east of Mexico Beach because of fires from the crash. Officials say the drone has a limited, 24-hour battery life and will be inactive after the battery is depleted.

Officials say the stretch of highway could remain closed for up to 24 hours.
