Four people were killed Wednesday when a small plane crashed at a Southern California airport, the Corona Fire Department said.

The aircraft crashed on the east side of the Corona Municipal Airport, Corona police said in a tweet. Police and fire personnel responded around 12:11 p.m. (3:11 p.m. ET) and found the plane on fire in the brush, Corona police said. Four people were aboard the aircraft, the Corona Fire Department said.

Corona fire officials contained the roughly quarter-acre fire.

A spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft that crashed was a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza.

Two FAA safety inspectors were at the crash site on Wednesday, said Ian Gregor, the FAA spokesman.

Corona is about 23 miles east of Anaheim.
