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.
