“I can confirm that there are several dead, both in the apparatus and inside some mobile homes,” said the sector fire chief, Scott Ehlers, during a press conference.

The crash occurred at 19:00 local time (00:00 GMT Friday), shortly after a neighboring airport received an alert message about a plane in distress, Ehlers said.
