A small plane crashed Sunday one mile east of the Barstow-Daggett Airport in San Bernardino County, officials said.

The plane, believed to be a Cessna 210, was headed from John Wayne Airport in Tustin to Henderson Executive Airport in Las Vegas when it crashed about 12:40 p.m., said Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department reported that the aircraft was fully engulfed in flames, Gregor said.

No other information was provided. It was not immediately known how many people were on board.

[Updated at 3:00 p.m.: All three people onboard the aircraft were killed, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said. The crash site was re-estimated to be about 2.5 miles east of the Barstow-Daggett Airport. Both the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate. Neither agency releases the identities of crash victims, Gregor said.]
