MADRID – Spanish authorities say three people died when a small airplane that was flying from Portugal crashed in northeastern Spain.
The regional government for Catalonia said Saturday that the plane had left from the Portuguese airport of Tires/Cascais.
Authorities say they haven't yet identified the three occupants or determined their nationalities.
A team of investigators are working to discover the cause of the accident.
The plane wreck caused a small brush fire that had to be extinguished by firefighters.
