5 dead after plane crashes into Southern California home

Five people were killed while two others were injured after a small plane crashed into a house in the U.S. state of California, the media reported on Monday.

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

Two individuals were transported to a nearby hospital with injuries, the fire authority said earlier today on Twitter. Investigators were collecting pieces of the plane that fell into homes across about four blocks in Yorba Linda, a community southeast of Los Angeles.

"The whole house shook".

Authorities planned to use DNA evidence to identify the two males and two females who died after the bulk of the wreckage hit a house they were in and the structure burst into flames.

"It wasn't intact", he said of the plane as it was coming toward the neighborhood. The Federal Aviation Administration said a twin-engine Cessna 414A crashed in Yorba Linda shortly after taking off from the Fullerton Municipal Airport.

Clint Langford, another neighbor, recalled hearing a low rumbling sound right before the crash.

"The main cabin of the airplane, along with one of the engines, came to rest at the bottom of a ravine in the backyard of somebody's house", Simpson said, reports CNN. One man used a garden house to douse a burning wing that landed on the street. "It was scary", he said. "The plane didn't hit and scatter, it blew up and hit the house". "And then all of a sudden boom". It also showed plane debris scattered on the ground.

Video footage surfaced on social media showing the home engulfed in a massive fire, and two explosions are heard.

The number of people in the plane are unknown.
