MARENGO, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say two people died when a single-engine plane crashed into a home in northwestern Wisconsin.

The Ashland County Sheriff’s Office received numerous 911 calls about 2:40 p.m. Saturday with reports of the crash in the town of Marengo.

No one on the ground was hurt.

The sheriff’s department says the victims are a 29-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman from Marengo, which is about 80 miles from Duluth, Minnesota.

Investigators do not believe there was anyone else in the plane.

A news release from the sheriff’s department said it will “share further information with the public regarding this incident as it becomes available.”

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
