Plane crashes into Ohio home, killing pilot

Ohio

CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say a small plane has crashed into a house in a suburban Cincinnati community, killing the pilot.

Emergency crews say no one was in the home at the time of the crash, and first responders got two dogs inside out safely. Authorities weren’t certain if anyone besides the pilot was in the twin-engine Piper PA-31 Navajo.

Madeira’s fire chief, Steve Ashbrock, says the plane crashed into a family room at the back of the home, and then went nose-first into the back yard.

The afternoon crash sent dark smoke billowing up in a neighborhood in the city of Madeira (muh-DIR’-uh), some 10 miles (16 kilometers) northeast of Cincinnati.

The Federal Aviation Administration says federal investigators are responding and that the National Transportation Safety Board will be in charge.
