PHOENIX (AP) _ A small plane crashed into a mobile home park about a mile from an airport Saturday, killing at least one person, an airport spokeswoman said.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the victim was on the ground or in the plane or if the plane hit any homes.

Deer Valley Airport Spokeswoman Suzanne Luber there was at least one confirmed fatality, but no other information was available.

The plane’s pilot had reported a problem with oil pressure just before crashing near Interstate 17, Luber said.
