ANGEL FIRE, N.M. —

Four people died at the airport in the northern New Mexico community of Angel Fire after the single-engine plane they were traveling in crashed as it was taking off.

No information was available about the two adults and two children aboard the single-engine Mooney plane. State police say there were no survivors in the crash.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are on their way to the site.
