CORNELIUS, Ore. (AP) -- A light plane pilot tells firefighters he made an emergency landing in a grassy field near Cornelius, Ore., after his plane's engine lost power. He was unhurt.

Cornelius Fire Department spokesman Matt Johnston says the pilot reported that he was trying to reach a nearby air strip Friday afternoon but couldn't make it.

Johnston says the Cessna 152 came to rest a few hundred feet from where it touched down. The Oregonian says the plane was not significantly damaged. The pilot was not identified.

Cornelius is located west of Portland.
