Clearwater Fire & Rescue Department said in a news release that it received a call about the crash at Bayside Waters mobile home park at 7:08 p.m. local time on Thursday, after multiple residences caught fire.

Several people had previously been inside the residence shortly before the incident, but only the two victims were inside at the time of the crash, the organization said.

Clearwater Fire Chief Scott Ehlers later said during a media briefing that when authorities arrived on the scene, the small plane was discovered in one of four mobile homes impacted by the crash.

“Our thoughts are with the three victims and their families; this tragedy could have been even worse,” said Police Chief Eric Gandy.
