A small plane crashed in the mountainous area southeast of Tehachapi, California, on Sunday, September 4, killing at least one person on board and igniting a wildfire that continues to burn out of control, according to the Tehachapi News.
The crash occurred Sunday morning shortly after a six-seater Cessna 210 was seen circling near Mountain Valley Airport, which is approximately 100 miles north of Los Angeles. At least one person died in the crash.
The fire had torched 500 acres by Sunday afternoon, and a spoksman for the Kern County Fire Department told CNN that one home had already been destroyed and 30 other structures are threatened.
As many as 300 firefighters are working to fight the blaze.
Tehachapi News points out that the wildfire is raging very near to where the 2010 West Fire torched 23 homes and 1,658 acres.
The National Transportation Safety Board and Federal Aviation Administration are both investigating the cause of this California aviation accident.
