Crews responding to fire following reports of small plane crash near LA

A propeller and debris in the driveway of a home

Yorba Linda, about 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles, was covered with smoke and debris after the crash and subsequent fire, according to pictures and video posted online.

Authorities said two other people were transported to a local hospital with unspecified injuries. Video showed airplane parts scattered on the ground and on rooftops.

It was unclear if they were in the house or the plane.

Seventy-two fire fighters attended the scene alongside local police, with the investigation into the crash still ongoing. "The number of people on board the aircraft is not presently known". The plane came to a stop on a backyard downhill from the burned house.

Five people were killed and two others were injured after a plane crashed into an Orange County home, officials said.

Two people were confirmed dead, the Orange County Fire Authority reported.

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

Earlier reports suggested two homes had become engulfed in flames after the incident.

Anaheim firefighters and deputies from the Orange County Sheriff's Department helped respond to the fires.

Three people, including a firefighter, were injured. No other identifying information such as names or ages was immediately released.

Panicked neighbours rushed to the burning home, dousing burning debris on the street with water from garden hoses.
