    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Two of the four hospitalized victims of a light civil airplane crash near the southwest US city of Las Vegas are in critical condition with burn wounds, local media report.

    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.

    The outlet said the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) online database had the aircraft registered in Virginia.

    FAA spokesman Ian Gregor was cited as saying the agency and the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the cause of the accident.
