At least two people are dead after a small plane crashed into an East Haven, Conn. house, according to local news reports.
The plane crashed into one house and a blaze from the crash ignited another. One of the homes was unoccupied at the time of the crash.
The other house was occupied by two children and their mother, according to NBC Connecticut. The mother survived and is now reportedly meeting with a priest.
NBC reports that the pilot and a 1-year-old child are dead, and the 13-year-old child who was also in the house at the time of the plane crash is still unaccounted for.
A coroner has been called to the scene, according to the New Haven Register.
Firefighters arrived on scene to put out a blaze that started after the crash. NBC Connecticut reports that the plane was attempting to land at Tweed New Haven Airport.
One witness told WTNH News that the plane was "sitting in a lady's bedroom." Another witness told The Register that it sounded like the engines on the plane cut out before it crashed into the house.
The plane is reportedly registered to a Washington man who came to the East Coast with his son to tour colleges, according to NBC. Family members of the pilot said they believe he and his son were on board the plane at the time of the crash, and emergency responders are still searching the scene for more bodies.
