The NTSB is investigating a small plane that crashed in Riverside County near Corona on Saturday, killing two people, according to ABC Local.

The single-engine Cessna plummeted into Joseph Canyon touching off a small brushfire that was quickly put out. Damage to the plane, however, was "so extensive" that investigators "could not read the plane's identification number."

The pilot and passenger were both killed. No names have been released.
