Fire personnel were able to make it to the crash scene and extinguish the flames.

Another dog survived the crash and was found at a nearby residence. Cincinnati Air Traffic Control reported that a plane that was being tracked disappeared from RADAR in the area where the crash was reported, Wheeles said.

The cause of the crash is unknown, but Wheeles said state police are working closely with the FAA and National Transportation Safety Board to determine the cause.

On Monday, Dec.18, autopsies will be performed on all three victims of the crash.

Firefighters arrived quickly to douse and clear the wreckage, but Wheeles estimated it could take days to clean up the scene.
