Five people have passed on in Southern California after a little plane collided with a house on Sunday, setting it ablaze.
The flight got into trouble barely minutes after taking off from a local airport some 20 miles (32km) south-east of the city.
Smoke was seen ascending out of a vast opening in the top of the gutted house after the plane, depicted as a Cessna, smashed and arrived in the house’s patio.
Preliminary radar data indicated the information demonstrated the plane made a left turn, moving to around 7,800 feet, before beginning a “rapid descent” into the Yorba Linda neighbourhood after reaching about 10 miles, said Smith.
Firefighters at the scene of the crash informed local media that two people are being treated for burns at a nearby hospital.
Video showed plane parts scattered on the ground and on rooftops and residents of the neighbourhood trying to fight the blaze caused by the crash with garden hoses as black clouds of smoke rose into the sky.
