Just after 2 p.m., the OCFA authority confirmed that there were at least two active house fires on Canyon Drive.

The wounded were taken to a hospital with burn injuries, said Pokey Sanchez, an assistant chief with the Orange County Fire Authority. He says the deceased occupants of the home were two males and two females.

Another tweeted: "Pretty sure we just saw a plane crash into a neighborhood". The number of people who were aboard the aircraft remains unclear. "I thought a bomb was dropped or something cuz I heard a plane engine moving in close and then my house shook on impact". No other identifying information such as names or ages was immediately released.

Aerial footage taken from news helicopters show plane parts, including side panels and a propeller, scattered on rooftops and driveways near the burned house.
