Authorities say two people have died after their small plane crashed into a home in the central Minnesota city of Sauk Rapids.
Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise said Saturday the people in the single-engine plane were sightseeing in the area prior to crashing Friday night. The victims' names have not been released.
Beise says there was one person inside the home, which was set ablaze by the crash. The man was able to evacuate through a window.
Beise says the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.
Neighbor Courtney Breth says she saw the small, white plane come around a larger plane then turned and "went straight down."
