Two people have been killed after a plane hit a home in the Heber-Overgaard area Friday night.

The FAA says the plane was a single-engine Zodiac 601 with two people on board.

The Navajo County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened around 5 p.m.

NCSO says a homeowner came home around that time and found a plane a few feet from his house, with damage done to the home.

The FAA says it’s unclear what caused the plane to crash. 

In a Saturday afternoon update, authorities identified the victims as Jay Lynch, 82, and Randal Lynch, 52, both from Florida.

The FAA and NTSB will continue to investigate.

The NCSO Criminal Investigations unit is also on scene assisting with the investigation.
