A plane carrying seven people, including the pilot, crashed Thursday in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, officials said, adding that there were no casualties but those on-board suffered injuries and severe burns.

Cape Air confirmed that the flight from Boston Logan International crashed into a wooded area while attempting to land at the Provincetown Municipal Airport. The twin-engine Cessna 402 burst into flames after crashing, WHDH reported.

Provincetown Town Manager Alex Morse said in a statement that “the weather caused an issue with the landing,” causing the plane to crash. He said there were no fatalities and all seven people on board were transported to a hospital. Morse added that the passengers suffered broken bones and severe burns.

The flight, identified by Cape Air as Flight 2072, crashed at about 3.30 p.m. Thursday between the intersection of Race Point Road and Province Lands Road, local newspaper the Cape Cod Times reported. Truro Fire Chief Tim Collins said the flames from the crash were already doused when Truro firefighters arrived at the scene.

Speaking with the ABC-affiliate WCVB-TV, passenger Autumn Kerr said she suffered “a lot of burns on legs and hands are all burned.” She said that as soon as the aircraft burst into flames, other passengers tried to leave the plane through the back.

The pilot helped Kerr out of her seat as she struggled to get the seatbelt off. “I’m still scared and still really shocked,” she said. Kerr’s friend who was on the same flight remained at a hospital in Cape Cod on Thursday evening.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said it will investigate the crash alongside the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). The Cape Cod National Park Service said "Race Point Road in Provincetown is closed at the intersection of Province Lands Road" while the investigation ensues.
