Two people were killed Saturday when their single-engine plane crashed in Kern County and ignited a grass fire that burned about 2.5 acres, authorities said.

Sean Collins, a spokesman for the Kern County Fire Department, said the plane went down about 1:30 p.m. on Old Town Road just west of Tehachapi. About 40 firefighters extinguished the resulting blaze.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board were notified about the crash, Collins said.

No further details were available.
