ADVANCE, N.C. (AP) - Two people have been killed in the crash of a small plane in Davie County.

Multiple media outlets report the aircraft went down Wednesday near Twin Lakes Airport southwest of Advance.

Davie County Fire Marshal Jerry Myers said the plane crashed about 2:30 p.m. Emergency officials have identified the victims as out-of-state residents, but their names haven’t been released pending notification of family members.

The two victims were the only people on board the plane.

Myers also said a small fire at the site was extinguished before rescuers arrived. Hazardous material crews also contained the aviation fuel spill with absorbent booms.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transit Safety Board are on site.
