A single-engine plane has crashed into a New Hampshire apartment building, killing everyone on board.
Flames as high as 40-feet were seen bellowing in the air after the crash, which happened near Keene’s Dillant-Hopkins airport.
The City of Keene said in a statement: ‘There was a plane crash near the Keene Airport into a multifamily building near Hope Chapel.
‘There were no injuries at the multifamily building. Unfortunately those on the plane have perished. The FAA has been notified.
‘Additional details will be shared as they become available.’
It was not clear how many people were on the plane at the time.
The aircraft involved may have been a single-engine, Beechcraft Sierra plane, WHDH reported.
Residents say the plane hit a storage area, which caught fire next to a small apartment building that shares a parking lot with Hope Chapel.
Those inside the building said they were terrified.
‘It was very scary, I mean, I was sitting in the chair and I heard the big bang and then the house shaking,’ said Robin Guimond, speaking to WCVB.
Another person inside the apartment building, Scott Gauthier, added: ‘I just grabbed what I needed to grab to be decent, got outside and looked up.
‘The roof was already in. It already spread all over the roof of the back of the house.’
