Everyone on board a small plane that crashed into the side of a house in New Hampshire perished, according to Keene municipal officials late Friday.
“There were no injuries at the multifamily building. Unfortunately those on the plane have perished,” the city said in a Facebook post.
Scott Gauthier reported hearing a loud explosion and feeling the building shake to NBC News affiliate NBC10 Boston.
According to Keene Police Capt. Steve Tenney, he is unaware of the identity of any crew members or passengers on board the plane, its number, or the cause of its crash.
“The whole building shook and then my mother went out to check on what was going on and she started screaming, ‘get out of the house.'”
He added that by the time he got out “you could feel the flames off the building.”
More than two hours after the incident was reported, at 9 p.m., aerial imagery captured thick smoke, the station claimed.
In a statement, the Federal Aviation Administration said that it and the National Transportation Safety Board would both look into the event.
A representative revealed the plane was a single-engine Beechcraft Sierra in a different statement.
