Two killed in fiery New Jersey plane crash

Two people have been killed and multiple buildings are on fire following a plane crash in New Jersey.

The Learjet 35 was attempting to land in the city of Carlstadt when it came down in a residential area.

The aircraft can carry a maximum of eight people.

"I got out of work and as soon as I heard a big boom I turned around immediately and proceeded to where the smoke was coming from," witness Christopher Pastor told CBS.

"I just started scoping the place to see if anyone was injured or if there was anything that I could do. Right there, all the cars were on fire. All the fuel went all over. The posts started to get on fire."
