One person was killed after a single-engine aircraft crashed near Banning, California on Tuesday evening. The plane reportedly burst into flames on crashing, and emergency responders and firefighters arrived at the scene shortly after. Authorities did not say what caused the incident. The deceased individual has not been identified.

"The crash involved a single-engine aircraft and 1 occupant perished in the incident. Fire resources will remain on scene for approx 1 hour," the Riverside County Fire Department tweeted.

Public affairs specialist at the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, Ian Gregor said the plane "caught fire just south of Interstate 10 near the Ramsey Street exit in Banning," as reported by Patch.

The aircraft, which remains unidentified, crashed around 6:40 pm local time [9:40 pm ET]. According to the fire department, a joint investigation has been launched by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and the Federal Aviation Administration. The National Transportation Safety Board [NTSB] will also reportedly join the probe.

Fire officials previously reported that the plane crash triggered a "vegetation fire" that spread around a quarter of an acre. The blaze was officially contained at 6:58 pm, the Riverside County Fire Department shared on Twitter.

Traffic was also impacted after the crash. Train movement was reportedly halted, as per the California Highway Patrol, and freeway traffic was interrupted but not restricted.
