A small plane crashed into a yard in Guatemala City on Thursday, reportedly killing six people on board and setting a home on fire near the airport. The Francisco Marroquin University said four of its professors were on the plane and died in the crash, along with the pilot and another passenger. Authorities were unable to confirm the number of dead, saying the blaze made it difficult for emergency personnel to examine the crash site. Guatemala's director of civil aviation, Juan Jose Carlos, said the plane's flight plan listed six people aboard.
