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

One firefighter suffered an ankle injury, Rossman said.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer told HuffPost via email that the Cessna 414A had "crashed into a residential home" in Yorba Linda "under unknown circumstances" after departing from nearby Fullerton Municipal Airport.

"It's the eerie, low rumbling sound that keeps getting lower and louder".

The plane nose-dived onto the 19000 block of Crestknoll Drive about 1:45 p.m., Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Carrie Braun said.

The victims comprised the pilot, who was the only occupant of the plane, and two men and two women inside the house.

Four or five houses were damaged by debris, he said.




"It's raining plane parts from the sky", Jared Bocachica said.

Footage from the scene showed a blaze engulfing one of the houses in the suburban area with people shouting to keep away from the building.

"The plane is not on camera, but the audio of the horrifying crash can clearly be heard".

Catherine Paulson, 78, said she considered herself lucky because she was not home when the debris crashed down and a piece of the plane landed in a tree right above her roof. Authorities say a few people died and a few were injured after the small plane crashed into the Southern California house.

The National Transportation and Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.

He told reporters Sunday that, according to preliminary radar data, the plane made a left turn, climbing to 7,800 feet, and went 10 miles out before making a "rapid descent" into the neighborhood.
