The crash was reported around 11:00 a.m., at West 15th Street and North Mountain Avenue. Dispatchers arrived to the area shortly after.
 
According to reports, a single-engine four-seat Cirrus SR22 flew from Torrance Municipal Airport to Cable Airport in Upland.

Moreover, Upland Police confirmed that the pilot and the sole occupant of the aircraft died in the crash. However, the identity of the victim has not yet been released.
 
Aerial footage showed a large portion of the home completely charred. The plane also had a built-in safety parachute that was seen hanging over a nearby tree.
 
Occupants inside the home, a father and a toddler, safely escaped and remained unharmed.
 
Nearby residents were asked to avoid the area while crews assess the exposure threats.
