BUENA VISTA, Colo. (AP) - A Buena Vista man is dead after his small plane crashed and burned Monday afternoon north of the town.

Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze says 63-year-old Jay Jones was the only person on board the plane that went down in a field about 4 miles north of the airport.

He says one witness reported hearing the engine sputter, but authorities are still trying to determine the cause.
