Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A small plane crashed in Atlanta on Thursday afternoon killing all three people on board, fire authorities said.
Atlanta Fire Rescue confirmed the plane crashed in a field at English Park about 2 miles from the Fulton County Airport, leaving no survivors.
Atlanta Fire Rescue Department Sgt. Cortez Stafford told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that pieces of the Cessna 560 aircraft were scattered across the park's football field and the crash had produced a blaze with plumes of black smoke.
"The aircraft is basically completely destroyed. It looks like it slid through the field. Not a lot of pieces left," he said.
It also caused damage to a nearby home, but no one outside the plane was injured.
The plane was traveling to Millington-Memphis Airport, the airport's executive director Roy Remington said.
Both the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the crash.
