An airplane reportedly crashed into a multifamily housing unit Friday night in southern New Hampshire, killing everyone on board.
Federal Aviation Administration officials said that the crash happened in Keene and involved a single-engine Beechcraft Sierra aircraft that crashed just north of a local airport.
“The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate,” the FAA said. “The NTSB will be in charge of the investigation and will provide additional updates.”
There were reportedly no fatalities involving anyone inside the building.
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 – however it was confirmed that there were no survivors.
Residents say the plane hit a storage barn area, which caught fire next to a small apartment building that shares a parking lot with Hope Chapel.
Flames ripped through the two-story barn, as locals said that their house shook as the plane made impact.
Eight of the tenants in the building were able to evacuate in time, and they were not injured, authorities confirmed.
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
American Red Cross of Northern New England also said they have six members of staff helping those at the scene of the plane crash.
