SAN DIEGO (AP) - A Southern California veterinarian has died in a plane crash that also burned down a home in San Diego.

Forty-six-year-old Michael Zareski died on Saturday along with another man when a single-engine charter plane lost power shortly after takeoff.

The plane crashed on a baseball field, skidded into a home and burst into flames.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says Zareski, a father of four, owned an animal hospital in Torrance and was heading back with friends from a veterinary conference in San Diego when the plane crashed.

Also killed was Robert Stelling of Southampton, New York. His wife, veterinarian Dawn Stelling, was injured along with the pilot.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
