PHOENIX (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration sent investigators to the scene of a deadly plane crash in north
Phoenix.

FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer tells The Associated Press the pilot was killed in the Wednesday morning crash. He was believed to be the only one on board. His name has not been released.

Kenitzer says the plane is a Cirrus S-R 22 single engine aircraft that was on a short final approach when it crashed outside
Deer Valley Airport. The plane is registered to a corporation called Magneto Investments of Phoenix. The burned and blackened
wreckage came to rest against an industrial building.

No one on the ground was injured.

Police spokesman Detective James Holmes said the plane had taken off from the airport shortly before the crash.
