Two Dead After Plane Crashes Into Home, Engulfing It In Flames

Two people have been killed and two injured after a small plane crashed into a Southern California house in the United States.

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

There was no immediate information on the extent of the injuries, and whether the people killed were on board the plane or on the ground.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the twin-engine Cessna 414A crashed in Yorba Linda shortly after taking off from the Fullerton Municipal Airport.

Video posted on Twitter showed panicked residents running to a home that was engulfed in flames. It also showed plane debris scattered on the ground.
