Plainville (US): A small plane has crashed into a house, killing three people on board, police said, but residents managed to flee as fire engulfed the home. 

The Beechcraft BE36 aircraft crashed into the house at about 5:45 pm yesterday, said Jim Peters of the Federal Aviation Administration. It had taken off from Lancaster airport in Pennsylvania and was headed to Norwood Memorial airport in Massachusetts. 

Fire crews extinguished the blaze nearly three hours after the crash in Plainville, southwest of Boston, said Massachusetts state police spokesman Dave Procopio. He said the residents escaped and preliminary reports show three people in the plane were killed. 

The plane wound up behind the two-story colonial, where a section of the tail and a charred wing rested on a hillside in the yard. 

Neighbors reported hearing something amiss as the plane flew over their homes.
