Authorities in western Pennsylvania say two bodies have been removed from the wreckage of a twin-engine plane that crashed into a house, narrowly missing a man sleeping on a couch with his dog.

Westmoreland County spokesman Dan Stevens says the bodies were found after the plane was unearthed from the wreckage of the home in Bell Township in a rural section of the county about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northeast of Pittsburgh.

Stevens says officials believe only two people were aboard the aircraft. He says the county coroner is trying to identify the victims.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the BE58 Beech Baron took off from a regional airport in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, at 9:08 a.m. Saturday and crashed 11 minutes later, setting the house on fire.
