Small plane with family aboard crashes into AZ mountain

A small plane crashed yesterday and burst into a fireball in the mountains east of Phoenix, Ariz.

Officials say three children and three adults were flying out of town for the holiday when their twin engine plane crashed into the Superstition Mountains around 6:30 p.m.

Investigators do not believe anyone survived, but so far they are only confirming that one child is dead.

The children were between 5 and 9 years old.
