At least one person was killed and a home was engulfed in flames after a plane crashed into it shortly after taking from an airport in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office says that the plane took off from Santa Fe Municipal Airport at 9.02am and crashed into the single-family home, which went up in a blaze.
Authorities do not think anyone was inside the home at the time of the incident.
The Federal Aviation Administration says that the plane involved in the accident was a Cessna 310 and it remains unknown how many people were aboard it.
New Mexico State Police tweeted that it was now investigating the “fatal” Tuesday morning crash.
“NMSP is investigating a fatal plane crash near the West Frontage RD and La Luna RD in Santa Fe. Scene is active,” tweeted New Mexico State Police.
