GEORGETOWN, Colo. (AP) — Two people were killed when their small airplane crashed into a slope at the Loveland Ski Area in central Colorado, authorities said Monday.

The single-engine plane crashed and burst into flames Monday morning, setting off a small wildfire that was quickly contained.

Capt. Randy Long of the Clear Creek County Sheriff's Office said the plane crashed next to one of the ski area's lifts.

The plane's identification numbers were destroyed in the fire and authorities don't yet have any details yet about where it was headed.
