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.
