Flames erupted after the Piper PA-28 Cherokee plane crashed outside an airport in Henderson, Nevada on Sunday, the local county aviation official told the Las Vegas Sun.

All four of the victims were hospitalized, the outlet cited city spokeswoman Kathleen Richards as saying.

Clark County Department of Aviation spokesman Paul Bobson told the newspaper the civil utility aircraft was en route to California.
