PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — Federal aviation officials say no one was injured after a small aircraft with four people on board crashed north of Los Angeles.

The FAA says a Cessna went down Sunday at the Brian Ranch Airport in the unincorporated community of Llano, about 75 miles north of Los Angeles.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said the plane crashed after striking a tree. The impact sparked a small fire, but the pilot and passengers were not seriously injured.

A Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher said no one required treatment at the scene.
