Reports of plane down in Yorba Linda, catching homes on fire

"It felt like an natural disaster and then my husband said, 'No, it's a plane, '" said one neighbor in video posted on social media.

Allen Kenitzer, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, said the aircraft went down under unknown circumstances.

"It's the eerie, low rumbling sound that keeps getting lower and louder".

Five People were killed and three were injured when a plane crashed into a house in California on Sunday.

He said: "I was about two miles away and likely in the flight path of the plane".

The plane, a twin-engine Cessna 414A, had departed from the Fullerton Municipal Airport shortly before the crash occurred around 1:45 p.m., KTLA reported.

It is not clear how many people were onboard the plane when it came down.

There's no information so far regarding why the plane crashed.

This footage shows smoke rising and flames leaping from the site of the crash.

Catherine Paulson, 78, said she considered herself lucky because she was not home when the debris crashed down and a piece of the plane landed in a tree right above her roof.

Rain from a winter storm helped firefighters extinguish the house fire.

The National Transportation and Safety Board will investigate the cause of the crash.

Debris was left strewn around the neighborhood and the fuselage reportedly ended up in a backyard.
