A small plane crashed into a house in Upland, killing the pilot, on Nov. 7, authorities said.

The crash caused the roof of the residence to burst into flames, but all of the occupants of the home were safe and accounted for, the San Bernardino County Fire Department said.

The incident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. in the 1200 block of West Overland Court, near 15th Street and Mountain Avenue.

The fire was under control in the early afternoon, the Fire Department said.

The investigation of the incident is ongoing, and the pilot was not immediately identified. The plane, a four-seat Cirrus SR22, crashed less than a mile from Cable Airport in Upland.

There have been at least two other crashes in Upland this year.

On May 1, a single-engine Storch FL-156C airplane crashed into a field near Cable Airport.

On June 15, a single-engine Cessna 182 crashed on Benson Avenue, just east of Cable Airport.
