Witnesses said they heard a loud crash and saw the plane wreckage in flames near some train tracks. The fire spread to surrounding grass and burned about a quarter acre in size near homes before fire crews got it under control.

Witnesses said it looked like pilot had lost control.

Investigators say the wreckage is so badly burned they cannot identify a tail number.
