MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A small, low-flying plane crashed Friday evening into a house in central Minnesota, witnesses say, starting the home on fire.

The crash happened in Sauk Rapids, near the area of 18th Street and 9th Avenue North, Benton County Dispatch said.

“Everybody kind of came out and saw it,” a 15-year-old witness told WCCO Radio.

She added that before the crash she saw a large plane flying low with a smaller plane flying just behind it. The smaller plane then fell, flipped over and crashed into the house.

Multiple emergency crews responded to the scene, and knocked down the fire.

Officials have yet to say if anyone in the home or plane was injured.

Witnesses, however, said that no one was in the house when the crash happened, and that the pilot somehow escaped the plane.

Still, there’s been no official word on injuries.

“Nobody knows what happened yet,” the 15-year-old witness said.
