SEDONA, Ariz. — Four people were killed after their plane crashed near Sedona, and officials say it might have caused a fire.

The Federal Aviation Administration says hikers in the Bear Mountain area reported the crash and possible fire around 3 p.m. Sunday.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office says fire crews found the single-engine plane about 6 p.m. in Fay Canyon. Officials say access to the crash site is difficult because of the terrain and fire.

The Arizona Republic reports (https://bit.ly/1oZWnn5) that firefighters, including helicopters and ground crews, are responding.

The newspaper reports that smoke is visible around Williams, Flagstaff and Sedona.
