Small plane crashes into Massachusetts home

PLAINVILLE, Mass. (AP) – Police say a small plane has crashed into a house in Massachusetts and the home is “fully engulfed” in fire.
Massachusetts State Police spokesman Dave Procopio says fire crews are battling the blaze at the house in Plainville, about 30 miles southwest of Boston. He says the home’s residents managed to escape after the crash and preliminary reports show three people in the plane were killed.

Jim Peters of the Federal Aviation Administration says the Beechcraft BE36 aircraft crashed into the house at about 5:45 p.m. Sunday. It had taken off from Lancaster Airport in Pennsylvania and was headed to an airport in Norwood, Massachusetts.

The plane wound up behind the two-story colonial, where a section of the tail and a charred wing rested on a hillside in the yard.
