Authorities say a small plane has plummeted into a residential neighborhood on New York's Long Island in a fiery crash, and one of the three people aboard has died.
Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says the aircraft hit the ground shortly before noon Sunday near a residential area in Shirley, about a mile north of Brookhaven Calabro Airport.
Suffolk County police say one person has died, and two others have been taken to Stony Brook University Medical Center with burns.
Their conditions aren't immediately available. The names of the people in the plane haven't been released, and it's not immediately clear whether the pilot is among the injured.
The FAA had no immediate information on the plane.
Witnesses say neighbors tried to douse the flames with fire extinguishers and garden hoses.
