And they're saying "no word on the cause"

I'm placing my bet on the wires I see across the scene.

 

What ever happened to the mandated local area familiarity flights for this week-old base?

 

Even at night, you can see a wire near the streetlight

"Arthurs says officials believe the helicopter can be repaired."

 

Could you have MORE wires around the helipad?

I wouldn't bet on a wire strike, although it's not impossible. Google Earth shows a fuel tank on the pad towards the corner of the street where the nearest wires are.
