Five people die after small plane crashes into home in Southern California

The crash in Southern California set two houses alight

A small plane crashed into a home in California on Sunday, killing the pilot and four others, USA officials say.

"Local authorities said there are injuries on the ground", Kenitzer said. A Cessna 414A, depending on its configuration, is capable of carrying up to 10 people.

The Orange County Fire Authority says it crashed into a single family home, igniting a fire.

Local residents described a shrill whistling sound before an explosion set the two-storey home on fire at 13:45 (21:45 GMT) on Sunday.

Firefighters are planning to search the inside of a Southern California house that burst into flames after being struck by pieces of a small plane that crashed into a neighborhood, killing two people and injuring two others.

The Cessna 414A had just departed from nearby Fullerton Municipal Airport before the crash, according to Allen Kenitzer, a spokesman with Federal Aviation Administration.

The second engine dislodged and fell on to the street, creating a large hole in the asphalt, according to Eliott Simpson, an aviation accident investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board.

The aircraft involved was a Cessna 414A Chancellor, an 8-seat twin-engine plane.

Images also showed a propeller and other debris scattered across a driveway.

Two other people were injured in the incident.

Video from the area of Crestknoll Drive and Glendale Drive just before 3 p.m. shows one residence destroyed by flames near the backyard where the aircraft landed.
