Two people were killed, and two were taken to the hospital Sunday afternoon when a small airplane crashed into a California home.

It's been reported that a small plane came apart in the air, dropping parts throughout a neighbourhood in southern California.

The Cessna aircraft took off from Fullerton Municipal Airport in Orange County, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Footage from the scene shows the carnage, with several homes damaged and one completely aflame.

Joshua Nelson said Sunday on Twitter.

Initially, a report by the Orange County Fire Authority said that only two people had died.

A spokesman with the National Transportation Safety Board says the twin-engine Cessna 414A crashed shortly after taking off from a nearby airport.

Two houses were involved in flames, fire officials told KTLA.
