Boulder County plane crash kills 4, FAA says

Four people were killed in the Boulder County plane crash that sparked a wildfire Sunday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The Cessna P337 went down under unknown circumstances in Boulder, the FAA said in a report on the agency’s website. The damage the aircraft sustained was listed as “destroyed,” with one member of the flight crew and three passengers killed.

Boulder County sheriff’s deputies initially confirmed that one person was killed in the crash.

According to Carrie Haverfield, a spokesperson for the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, the plane was too hot for investigators to access on Sunday.

Haverfield said that a team of investigators will be on the scene Monday afternoon and she expects more information to be made available soon.

The crash sparked a small wildfire that burned about a half acre before firefighters managed to get it under control.
