Small plane crashes into Colorado home

NORTHGLENN, Colo. - A small plane crashed into a Colorado home Monday, setting the plane and the home on fire, but the pilot walked away with minor injuries, officials said.

Northglenn Police Department spokesman Ron Haralson said the plane was towing a banner when it crashed about 3:45 p.m. Monday afternoon into the home in Northglenn in Adams County.

No one was in the house at the time and there were no reports of any injuries on the ground.

Haralson said the pilot got out of the cockpit and got into an ambulance for treatment while the plane and house burned. The fires were quickly put out.

Both the plane and the house had extensive damage, CBS Denver reported.

Haralson said the cause of the crash was not immediately known.

Witnesses said the plane was flying low when it went down.
