AA / Washington / Servet Gunerigok

At least two people were killed and two others injured when a small plane crashed into homes in the U.S. state of California on Monday, authorities said.

The twin-engine Cessna crash occurred at midday in the suburb of Santee, about 30 kilometers northeast of San Diego.

“Two deaths have been confirmed for the moment, two victims have been taken to hospital, their state of health remains uncertain,” Santee authorities said on Twitter.

“Electricity has been cut off in the immediate vicinity. Debris stretches for nearly a block,” the tweet read.

Three houses sustained “significant damage” and two burned down to the ground, Fire Chief John Garlow told USA Today.

The plane crashed around noon. A delivery truck and a fire hydrant were also affected.
