The single-engine turboprop aircraft crashed into a home on Mansion Street in the small town of Magnolia Springs, Baldwin County, Alabama – directly adjacent to Foley – at around 4:23 pm local time.
Foley Fire Chief Joey Darby said that the blaze impacted a house and several vehicles, which triggered a massive response from emergency services to contain a “large volume of fire." Despite the plane going down in “a heavy populated residential neighborhood,” Darby said that no civilians were injured.
The house that caught fire was “occupied” at the moment of the crash, but all the residents managed to “safely get out” before it was fully engulfed in flames, Darby told the media.
