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.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
