SNOHOMISH, Wash. (AP) — Two people have died in the fiery crash of a small plane northeast of Seattle between Snohomish and Monroe. News outlets report that the Federal Aviation Administration says a single-engine Textron 208B crashed in a field at around 9:30 a.m. Friday. The fire chief confirmed that two people on board died in the crash. Preliminary reports indicate that the plane crashed in a field near U.S. 2. The highway in that area was temporarily closed. The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board were at the scene Friday afternoon. The NTSB will handle an investigation. The names of those killed will be released later by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
