Plane crashes into California homes, 2 dead

On Monday, a small plane crashed into a residential section of a California city, killing at least two people and destroying two houses and several vehicles in the process.

Aerial footage from Santee, a suburb of San Diego, showed firefighters hosing down the burned remnants of the homes.

On an adjacent street corner, a burned-out delivery vehicle was also observed.

The plane, according to Fox 5 San Diego, was a twin-engine Cessna 340, a six-seat plane that had taken off from Yuma, Arizona an hour before.

The plane's remains were not visible in the aerial footage.

At least two people died in the event, according to fire official Justin Matsushita.

He told reporters, "It's a really horrible scene for our men, and we're trying to comb through it."
