Rome: Italian firefighters say a small plane has crashed in a car depot on the outskirts of Rome on Friday, killing the two people on board and sparking a fire on the ground.

Simona Pognant, a spokeswoman for Rome firefighters, says the flames enveloped about 30 cars in the depot, which is located near Rome's Ciampino airport. The depot contained vehicles sequestered by police.

She says the Cessna aircraft had left Montichiari, near Brescia and was headed for Rome's small Urbe airport.

Firefighters, who pulled the two bodies from the aircraft, were working to control the blaze.
