Houses erupt into flames after small plane crashes in Yorba Linda

At least two people are dead after a plane crashed in Yorba Linda, according to the Orange County Fire Authority. Two other people were taken to hospital.

Images also showed a propeller and plane debris scattered across a driveway and a man dousing a burning object that was on the street with a garden hose.

Video posted on Twitter showed panicked residents running to a home that was engulfed in flames.

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 accident happened at about 2 p.m. PT on Sunday when the plane, a twin-engine Cessna 414A, went down in Yorba Linda, a city about 26 miles (42 kilometers) southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

It is not clear how many people were onboard the plane when it came down.

The Orange County Fire Authority said crews ultimately responded to two homes which had caught on fire.

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