MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - Two people are dead after a plane crashed into a home in a Miramar neighborhood. Both people were on board the plane.

Fire rescue units responded to the scene, along the 2200 block of Jamaica Drive, at around 11:45 a.m., Monday.

The single-engine Aventura II crashed into the home just south of North Perry Airport and came into contact with power lines over the house, which became tangled around it, complicating rescuers’ access to the cockpit of the plane.

Crews are working to remove the plane from the home as authorities begin to investigate what went wrong.

“In regards to why the plane crashed, what happened, that is an investigation that [the National Transportation Safety Board] will be handling,” said Miramar Police spokesperson Tania Rues.

According to Florida Power and Light, 35 people lost power because of the crash.

The Federal Aviation Administration released a statement that reads in part, “The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate … Neither agency identifies people involved in aircraft accidents. After investigators verify the aircraft registration number at the scene, the FAA will release it (usually on the next business day) on this web page.”
