The incident occurred about 11:30 when the single-engine plane crashed into a two-story house in a neighborhood of Roseville.
Residents said they heard a loud boom.
Ronald Hammer arrived on the scene shortly after the crash.
"There was this huge fireball coming out of the two-story and the house next door, the side of it was all on fire."
Investigators say there might have been someone in the home at the time it was hit by the plane, but because of the extensive fire damage they couldn't immediately make that determination.
Officials at the site said they don't know what caused the crash but witnesses told them the pilot was attempting to make a maneuver at a low altitude and apparently lost control of the plane.
