BOULDER CITY (KSNV MyNews3) – Two people are dead after a small plane crashed in Boulder City on Friday afternoon.

The single-engine aircraft crashed about a half-mile west of Boulder City's airport, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

Emergency crews are responding to a single-engine aircraft that went down in a desert area near the Boulder City Municipal Airport.

Boulder City Police Chief Tom Finn says rescuers are using four-wheel drive vehicles to get to the wreckage after the small jet crashed after 12:30 p.m. Friday.

Finn says the crash site is in the middle of the desert and says nobody on the ground has been injured.

The plane was a Czech-made Aero Vodochody L39, said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

News 3 has dispatched a news crew and will have more information as details become available.
