PALMER LAKE, Colo. — A single-engine plane crashed and burst into flames near Palmer Lake on Wednesday morning, the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said. The plane went down just after 8 a.m. near homes on the south side of the lake, witnesses said. A small grass fire started, but firefighters were able to extinguish it.
Authorities said they are unable to identify the tail number or whether there are any victims because there is little left of the plane. Police in Palmer Lake are handling the crash and the sheriff’s office is assisting.
