    MADEIRA, Ohio — The FAA says it has investigators on the way to the site of a plane crash in Madeira, Ohio.

    A twin-engine Piper PA-31 crashed into a home, the FAA said in a news release.

    Fire Chief Steve Ashbrock said it wasn't immediately clear how many people had been on board. The pilot is dead, he said.

    The aircraft was on fire when first responders arrived at about 3:18 p.m.

    Everybody who lives in the home has been accounted for and is safe, Ashbrock said.

    A listing for the aircraft's tail number indicates it's a 1980 Piper that seats up to eight. It's registered to a company based in Brandon, Mississippi.

    The company says the plane is used for photography and surveying.
