Two people were killed and two others injured when a small plane crashed into a home on Sunday outside of Los Angeles, authorities said.

Fire officials say two people were treated in hospital for burns.

One firefighter suffered an ankle injury, Rossman said.

Video showed plane parts scattered on the ground and on rooftops and residents of the neighbourhood trying to fight the blaze caused by the crash.

It happened on Sunday afternoon in a residential area of Yorba Linda, which is southwest of Los Angeles. "It shook the house".
