SANTEE (AP) — A small plane crashed into a suburban Southern California neighborhood on Monday, injuring at least two people and setting two homes ablaze, authorities said.
The crash happened shortly after noon in the city of Santee, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of downtown San Diego.
Two people received burn injuries, said Fire Chief John Garlow. He didn’t know their conditions or whether they were in the plane or on the ground.
One home was “well-involved” by flames and a second home also caught fire, Garlow said. A box truck, possibly a package delivery vehicle, also burned, he said.
Garlow said initial reports were that the plane was a twin-engine aircraft. He didn’t know where the flight originated or where the plane was haded.
The crash happened about three blocks from Santana High School in the city of about 50,000 residents. The school said on Twitter that “all students are secure.”
