Twin-engine plane crashes in Colorado neighborhood, killing all three aboard

Updated:
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) _ A twin-engine plane crashed in a neighborhood Saturday, killing all three people aboard. No injuries on the ground were reported.

Fort Collins police spokeswoman Rita Davis said the plane did not hit any homes in the community 65 miles north of Denver.

Firefighters blocked off part of the area after fuel ignited and damaged a nearby van.

Witnesses said the plane seemed to be having engine trouble before it crashed about noon.

``It fell straight out of the sky. It hit the ground and there were parts and gas everywhere,'' resident James Noren told The Coloradoan newspaper of Fort Collins.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said the plane, a Beechcraft 58, was headed to Omaha, Neb., after it left Fort Collins/Loveland Airport.
