LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) - Fire officials say a single engine plane crashed in mountainous Riverside County, killing three people on board.

Cal Fire spokesman Lucas Spelman says the plane clipped a tree, breaking off its wing, and then fell into a ravine around 9:21 a.m. Sunday near the line dividing Riverside and Orange counties. When fire crews reached the wreckage, they found three bodies inside.

Spelman says the crash caused a small brush fire that was quickly extinguished.

The plane’s tail was destroyed, so officials could not immediately determine who owned it or where it took off.
