A small airplane crashed into a residence in a Southern California city, leaving one person dead. Three people inside the home, including an infant, made it to safety, officials said.

“A single-engine Cirrus SR22 crashed under unknown circumstances into a house on West 115th Street in Upland,” FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor confirmed. Upland is 20 miles west of San Bernardino.

San Bernardino County Fire Department spokesman David Pingree told CNN affiliate KCAL that two adults and the child were able to get out of the home on Thursday morning.

It’s not clear who was killed in the crash.

There is no information on the pilot or how many people were on board the four-seat aircraft, which was taking off from Upland.

The fire was brought under control, official said.
