CORONA (CBS/KNX1070) — Authorities have yet to release the identities of two killed when a single-engine plane went down in the Cleveland National Forest near Corona.

The aircraft crashed Saturday in Joseph Canyon near Suzie Circle and sparked a brush fire.

Units from Corona and the U.S. Forest Service, with the help of an airtanker managed to contain the fire to about an acre, Kim Marriner, reporting for KNX 1070, said.

Corona investigators say the tail number on the plane is unreadable so the owner has not been identified.

The cause of the crash still under investigation.

Details on where the flight originated or where it was bound have not been revealed.

    Buddy Holly took his last plane ride in a Beechcraft Bonanza too. Those ‘V’ tails always scared me.
