At least five people have been killed after a plane crashed into a house in California.
The small aircraft, which was carrying a family of five – two adults and three teenagers – came down in the city of Riverside shortly after taking off from a nearby airport on Monday afternoon.
Four of those on board the plane and one person on the ground were killed.
One of the teenagers on the plane survived the crash and suffered only minor injuries, having been thrown from the wreckage when the aircraft split apart on impact. A second person on the ground suffered serious injuries.
Firefighters arrived at the scene to find the home engulfed in flames, while two neighbouring homes sustained damage in the crash and ensuing fire.
