A small plane crashed at Aspen/Pitkin
County Airport in Colorado on Sunday, the Pitkin County
Sheriff's office said.
Further details, including how many people had been on board
the plane and their condition, were not immediately available,
the office said.
The comedian Kevin Nealon described seeing the crash on his
"Horrible plane crash here at Aspen airport," he wrote in
one of several messages sent from the scene. "Exploded into
flames as it was landing. I think it was a private jet."
LeAnn Rimes, the country singer, also took to Twitter to
describe seeing what she also described as the "horrible" crash.
"So sad!" she wrote.
Located in the Rocky Mountains about 190 miles (300 km) west
of Denver, Aspen is known for its ski resorts.
