LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Two people are dead after a plane crash in Liberty Township.

Police say a small two-seater plane came down between two houses on Sunrise View Circle around 9 a.m. Saturday, hitting one of them. The plane ended up in the backyard of the house it struck.

Two men were inside the plane at the time of the crash and both were pronounced dead at the scene. The two men are said to be co-owners of the plane that crashed.

A family friend says the two are brothers.

Both houses were occupied during the crash but all family members were uninjured.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones says one house is now inhabitable because the plane hit the front corner of the home, exposing the living room to the elements.

Another home sustained heat damage.

A witness on the scene said the plane was doing aerobatic maneuvers before it crashed.

The plane they were flying is called an Aero Sport which is an acrobatic aircraft.

A neighbor, who spoke to FOX19 NOW's Lindsey Wopschall, smelled fire from her home and when she went outside to see what the smell was, she found a plane up in flames with two men inside.

The neighbor said she felt helpless as she stood back watching the flames burn the plane.
