Santiago: A small plane crashed on top of a home in the southern Chilean city of Puerto Montt, killing all six people aboard, authorities said Tuesday.
The plane crashed near “La Paloma” aerodrome about 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) south of the Chilean capital of Santiago. TV footage and news photos showed the back end of the plane inside the home while firefighters rushed to the scene to put out flames spreading to a neighboring house.
Puerto Montt Mayor Harry Jurgensen said the plane fell shortly after taking off and had tanks of fuel on board. He said the pilot and five passengers were killed.
