Two people and a dog are dead after a plane hit an electrical line and crashed Wednesday in an open field near Centennial Airport.

The crash, which happened in the Lone Tree area near Interstate 25, ignited a brush fire and led to a power outage for surrounding homes.

The crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.

The plane — a single-engine, propeller-driven Lancair Evolution — was en route to Centennial Airport, said Deborah Grigsby Smith, a spokesperson for the airport.

The crash is the second near Centennial Airport in recent weeks. Two planes preparing to land at the airport collided on May 12, leaving both badly damaged. No one was hurt.
