Eeep. Small plane crash at Deer Valley Airport, Phoenix, AZ

KTVK Channel 3 in Phoenix, Arizona, A small plane crashed into a building at (or possibly near) Deer Valley Airport, at about 6 a.m. local time (about 9 a.m. Eastern).

Deer Valley Airport is a large general aviation airport, with a flight school, and apparently in or near an industrial park.

KPHO CBS Channel 5 reports, "The building is occupied by Citywide Pest Control."

A KTVK news helicopter saw the crash and reported that "the plane appeared to be trying to land on Runway 7-Left, which is surrounded by buildings."

CNN is reporting that it was believed to be a student pilot; however, the KTVK website says, "There's no information at this point about the pilot or any passengers."
