Washington: A pilot, four skydivers and the two occupants of the home have all survived after a small plane on Sunday crashed onto a house in Phoenix in the US state of Arizona.

Fire officials in the suburb of Gilbert say the people in the plane were all able to eject before the aircraft crashed onto a house.

 

There were two people inside the home; neither of them were injured.

The pilot was taken to hospital to be treated for burns police said, adding that none of the skydivers were hurt. "Fire under control, working on hot spots," police said in a tweet.
