TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state TV says a Boeing 707 Kyrgyz cargo plane has crashed west of Tehran amid severe weather and that there are fears all 10 crew members have been killed.

The TV says a fire engulfed the plane immediately after the crash in the town of Safadasht. It's about 50 kilometers, or 30 miles, southwest of Tehran. It says rescue teams, including ambulances and a helicopter, have rushed to the site of the crash.

The report says the crash occurred as the plane was making a landing approach heading for the wrong airport and trying to land at a non-commercial airport near a residential area instead of a cargo airport some 4 kilometers, or 2.5 miles away.

The plane was carrying a cargo of meat from Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan to Iran.
