Six people were killed on Monday night after a small plane burst into flames and crashed onto an Arizona golf course shortly after takeoff.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said the Piper PA-24 Comanche went down after taking off from the Scottsdale Airport.

Emergency crews responded to the TPC Scottsdale Champions Golf Course, the sister course to the Stadium Course where the Waste Management Phoenix Open is held each February, around 9pm Monday night.

Police said no one on the ground was injured in the crash near Bell Road and 82nd Street, just north of Scottsdale Airport.

It is not yet clear if the plane engine had caught fire, or if the passenger cabin was the course of the fire. The FAA is leading the investigation into the crash.

Kenitzer said the plane caught fire after takeoff from Scottsdale Airport, but it’s still unclear what caused the fire.

At the time of the crash, officials said there were ‘multiple fatalities’ and that no one on board had survived.

‘We do know the flight originated at Scottsdale Airport and it appears it went down shortly after takeoff,’ Officer Kevin Watts, a Scottsdale police spokesman, said.

The Scottsdale Airport and the TPC Scottsdale Champions Golf Course are a little over two miles apart.
