HARPSWELL — A plane made an emergency landing on a grass air strip in Harpswell on Sunday evening after running out of fuel.

Few details were available at 8 p.m., although Cumberland County dispatcher said the plane landed in the area of Route 123 — also known as Harpswell Neck Road — and Basin Cove Road.

The airstrip is off Birchmere Lane in Harpswell Neck, Cundy’s Harbor Fire Chief Ben Wallace Jr. said.

Brunswick Fire Lt. John Faith said a Brunswick rescue unit responded, but the occupants of the plane declined to be taken to the hospital. It was unclear how many people were aboard the plane.
