A quick report came out on Friday morning, telling us that three people lost their lives in a plane crash in Clearwater, Florida, on Thursday night. The small plane crashed into a mobile home park, causing a fire. The victims include the pilot and two people from the mobile home. The crash occurred at 7:27 p.m. ET.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) stated that the plane crashed for unknown reasons into the mobile home park, leading to a fire after the crash. The pilot was the only person on the plane. Earlier that night, there were nine people in the mobile home, but only two were there when the crash happened, according to the Clearwater Fire and Rescue Department.

Firefighters rushed to the Bayside Waters mobile home park, where they found four trailers on fire, one of them with the crashed plane inside. The fire chief mentioned that the plane was mainly in one mobile home, and efforts were ongoing to control hot spots and recover the bodies.

Clearwater Police Chief Eric Gandy expressed condolences to the victims’ families and emphasized that the situation could have been even more tragic. A resident reported hearing what seemed like an explosion, followed by a large pillar of smoke.

According to Fire Chief Scott Ehlers, they received reports of a fire at the mobile home park simultaneously with news of a plane emergency at an airport. The plane disappeared from radar about 3 miles north of a runway, the same location as the mobile home park. The single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza V35 had taken off from Vero Beach earlier that day.
