No one was hurt on the ground, the Sheriff’s Department said.

The medical examiner will investigate and identify the victims once family members have been notified.

The Sheriff’s Department said the plane was a Learjet, and authorities are uncertain how many people were on board, CNN affiliate KGTV reported.

“When firefighters arrived at the scene there was significant rain occurring and there was a large debris field that stretched about 60 metres,” Lakeside Fire Protection District Chief Don Butz told CNN.

“The firefighters observed a significant fireball and smoke from the fire station — the fire station is a half a mile away from the scene,” Mr Butz said.

The chief said they were aware of a vehicle being damaged.

There was rain in the area with breezy conditions, CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri reported.

The El Cajon observation site showed light winds of 16-24km/h near the time of the crash, but gusts were much higher in the nearby foothills, peaking at 64-72km/h, Mr Javaheri added.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board have been notified, and will handle the plane crash investigation, the Sheriff’s Department said.
