A small plane crashed into a Northglenn, Colorado home Monday afternoon, causing a fire.

The crash happened before 4 p.m. at 11067 East Livingston Drive, authorities said. The pilot was able to walk away from the crash and call 911.

No one was home at the time of impact, North Metro Fire Rescue officials reported.

Neighbor Mike Papp said there was the sound of “buzzing and then a loud boom” when plane hit the house. The plane flies frequently in that area, towing a banner for Geico insurance, Papp said.

Papp said he knew the family whose home was hit, but not well.

It is unclear what caused the crash.

The fire was extinguished by 4:15 p.m. The fire extended from the second story into the basement, a fire department spokeswoman told 7News.
