BREAKING: Three Killed After Plane Crashes Into Massachusetts Home

A private plane crashed into a home in Plainville, Massachusetts, around 5:45 p.m., Sunday evening killing all three passengers on board, the Associated Press reports.

The four residents inside the home managed to escape safely, but the house was engulfed in flames, according to the AP and Massachusetts State Police.

A Federal Aviation Administration official told the AP that the plane had taken off from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and was headed to an airport in Norwood, Massachusetts. Plainville is located about 30 minutes southwest of Boston.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Jordan Root said, there was drizzle and low clouds across the region around the time of the crash with winds generally out of the north at about 7 to 14 mph.

"Visibility was reduced due to the low clouds, fog and drizzle," he said.

Along with the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.
