Four Killed in Single-Engine Plane Crash in Arizona
(SEDONA, Ariz.) -- A plane crash in the Bear Mountain area of Sedona left four people dead and a fire burning.
U.S. Forest Service spokesman Brady Smith said he did not know how many people were onboard the plane at the time of the crash, but that authorities believe four people were killed.
The crash site is difficult to access due to steep terrain and the ongoing fire, authorities said. Initial flyovers at about 4 p.m. on Sunday were unsuccessful in locating the wreckage, but just after 6 p.m. the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office confirmed that it had located the downed single-engine plane.
The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration were alerted to the crash.
