A Cessna 414 plane crashed into a suburban New Jersey home Tuesday morning, igniting a massive fire and completely destroying the house, local fire officials said. The crash was in Colonia, about 22 miles outside of New York City. Video from the scene shows massive flames and plumes of smoke rising into the air. The pilot, the sole person on board, was killed, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. No one was inside the house, but the blast caused heat and fire damages to both homes next door, according to Woodbridge police. A woman was in one of those adjacent homes; she escaped uninjured after hearing the explosion, said police.
