Plane crashes in Southern California; 2 killed, officials say

At least two people were killed in California on Sunday after a small plane crashed in a residential neighborhood, officials said.

It's been reported that a small plane came apart in the air, dropping parts throughout a neighbourhood in southern California.

Yorba Linda is about 33 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

A two-story home caught fire when a large piece of the plane crashed into the roof and burst into flames, killing four occupants as well as the pilot, the only person in the plane.

Joshua Nelson said Sunday on Twitter.

The Orange County Fire Authority said the crash in a Yorba Linda neighborhood ignited the house Sunday afternoon.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the incident, Kenitzer said.
