On Thursday evening in Clearwater, Florida, a small plane crashed into a mobile home park, causing a fiery incident that resulted in three fatalities. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released a report on Friday, stating that the crash occurred at 7:27 p.m. ET under unknown circumstances, leading to a post-crash fire.

According to the FAA, the plane had only one occupant, the pilot. Unfortunately, three people lost their lives in the incident – one from the flight crew and two individuals inside a home at the mobile park.

Before the crash, the Clearwater Fire and Rescue Department reported that at least nine people were in the mobile homes, but only two remained at the time of the incident. Firefighters responded to the scene, finding four trailer homes ablaze, one of which housed the crashed plane.

The aircraft, identified as a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza V35, had taken off from Vero Beach earlier on Thursday and crashed into the residential area after the pilot reported engine failure. The pilot’s distress was captured on LiveATC.net, where they mentioned, “I’m losing engine.”

Clearwater Police Chief Eric Gandy expressed condolences to the victims’ families and acknowledged that the situation could have been even more tragic. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is conducting a preliminary investigation, and the community is mourning the loss in this unfortunate incident.
