A plane has crashed in northern Vermont, killing its sole occupant.
WCAX-TV reports the Vermont State Police are investigating the crash in Island Pond. The crash happened Saturday afternoon, near the John H. Boylan Airport. Emergency crews responding to a large fire about 100 yards from the airport runway found a small, single-engine plane that had been badly burned.
State police said they were working to identify the occupant of the plane late Saturday.
Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board investigators were expected to arrive at the scene Sunday.
Island Pond is a census-designated place of about 800 people within the town of Brighton, about 20 miles from the border with Canada.
