PHOENIX — A plane is down in a desert area near Deer Valley Airport.

The incident occurred Wednesday around 8:45 a.m. in the area of 7th Street and Deer Valley Road, about a mile east of the airport.

Video from the scene showed a small plane on the ground with surrounding emergency crews. It did not appear to have extensive damage.

The FAA says the single-engine Mooney M20 landed short of the airport in the desert under unknown circumstances.

Two people were on the plane, and Phoenix fire officials say both people refused transport to the hospital.

No further information has been released.
