Two dead after small plane crashes in USA suburb, setting homes ablaze

The twin-engine plane came apart and caught fire mid-flight, witnesses told local media, before crashing in Yorba Linda, a suburb of Los Angeles.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident, Kenitzer said.

Debris was scattered over four blocks, Simpson said.

Those killed in the home were two males and two females, Orange County officials said at a news conference.

Only one structure was involved in the crash, fire authorities said.

Ambulances stand on place as the smoke rises from a house on fire by the crash of a Cessna 414A in a residential area in Yorba Linda, California. It was unclear if they were in the house or the plane.

Authorities say two people died and two were injured after a small plane crashed into a Southern California house.

The wounded were taken to a hospital with burn injuries, said Pokey Sanchez, an assistant chief with the Orange County Fire Authority.

It's believed the twin-engine Cessna 414A took off from a nearby airport, with just one person - the pilot - on board.

Firefighters suppress a fire at the scene of a deadly plane crash in the residential neighborhood of Yorba Linda, California, Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019.

About 70 firefighters responded to the massive blaze, along with deputies from the Orange County Sheriff's Department.

Twitter user Joshua Nelson posted a video of what appear to be burning plane parts on the street just after 2 p.m.

No other information was immediately available.
