A small plane crashed near a school in Santi, setting 2 houses on fire. At least 2 injured

Authorities say a small plane crashed on a Southern California suburb Monday, injuring at least two people and setting two homes on fire.

The crash happened shortly after noon in the town of Santi, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of San Diego.

Fire Chief John Garlow said two people were burned and injured. He did not know their condition, whether they were on a plane or on the ground.

Garlo said one house was “well involved” in the blaze and another caught fire. A box truck, possibly a package delivery vehicle, also caught fire, he said.

Garlo said the initial reports were that the plane was a twin-engine plane. He did not know where the flight started or where the plane was going.

The crash happened about three blocks from Santana High School, a town of about 50,000 residents. “All students are safe,” the school said on Twitter.
