Viewer Sarah Buell submitted video to 3 News Now and said the hot air balloon crew was running low on fuel and weren't going in the right direction.

"They just kept getting lower and a neighbor yelled out to them and asked if they were trying to land and told them to go to the intersection where there weren’t any power lines," said Buell, who added the hot air balloon was managed by a company called Belvedere.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene. No injuries were reported.
