'Horrific': Plane crash kills 5 on Christmas Eve trip

Several people died after a plane crashed at the Bartow Municipal Airport around 7:20 am Sunday, deputies said.

"You can hear the engine as it revved up and as the plane took off, and there's not one sign of the aircraft that was obviously soaked in a very dense, very heavy fog".

It is now unknwown what caused the crash but the airport was struggling with visibility at the time of the incident due to heavy fog, local media reports.

Airport officials said the plane was fully engulfed in flames after the crash.

According to the Polk County, Florida, Sheriff's Office, a Cessna 340 twin-engine plane crashed shortly after takeoff at the Bartow Municipal Airport in Bartow.

Victoria was a school teacher in Baltimore, Maryland, and Peter was a law student at the University of Maryland, Judd said.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are en-route to investigate the crash.

No further information was immediately released.
