Posted at 10:03 PM, Sep 17, 2016

Officials are investigating what led to a plane going down over a Gilbert neighborhood Saturday night, as residents spotted a fireball over the sky before a home erupted in flames.

The pilot was treated for burns, four skydivers safely ejected, and two people inside the house escaped uninjured.

Video showed an apparent fireball streaking through the sky before the divers could be seen parachuting to the ground. Footage also showed the Gilbert couple's house on fire, as well as major damage left in the crash's wake.
