A small plane trying to make an emergency landing crashed into two houses Tuesday, killing five people and starting fires that seriously burned three others in one of the homes, authorities said. The identities of the dead were not immediately released. At least two victims were aboard the plane, which was registered to a Daytona Beach company linked to the late chairman of NASCAR, America's popular stock car racing circuit. A NASCAR spokesman in Charlotte, North Carolina, said the public relations staff was "in the information gathering stage" but he had no further details. Both of the homes that were hit were largely gutted by the flames, and smoke could be seen rising from the neighborhood where the plane went down around 8:40 a.m.
