LAKE WORTH (CBSMiami/AP) — A plane has crashed in South Florida.

Florida authorities say two people died after a twin engine plane crashed in a south Florida park and caught fire.

The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office said the accident occurred on Sunday morning near an airport located in south Palm Beach County.

Albert Borroto, a spokesman for Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, told reporters that the plane was “engulfed in flames” when firefighters arrived on the scene. Borroto said no one in the plane survived.

The Palm Beach Post reported that Federal Aviation Administration said the plane had departed from Key West. The crashed plane was a Cessna C340, according to the FAA.

Luz Rodriguez told the newspaper she saw the plane before it crashed.

She added she ran to the plane with two other men, but the flames were too intense to reach the people inside.
