WASHINGTON DC [US], OCTOBER 24: A U.S. Naval training plane crash in the southern U.S. state of Alabama on Friday has killed two crew members, according to the US Navy.

The Navy took to its official Twitter handle and wrote, “The T-6B Texan II aircraft crashed in Foley, Alabama, at approximately 5 p.m. CST today. The aircrew did not survive the crash.”

“No civilians were injured on the ground,” the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.

The US Department of Defence and the Navy will handle the investigation, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office tweeted.

However, a house and several cars caught fire after the two-seater plane crashed.

Talking to local news outlets, Foley Fire Chief Joey Darby said that responders encountered a “large volume of fire” from a home, and firefighters were able to make “a quick stop on the fire.”
