ROY, Utah (AP) -- A small plane has crashed into a house in Roy, Utah, setting that home and at least two others on fire.
Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham tells The Salt Lake Tribune that no one died in the Sunday evening crash, but the pilot was "severely" injured.

The small plane was flying toward the Ogden-Hinckley Airport when it began hitting utility poles and trees and then crashed into a home. Roy is about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City.

Whinham says all the neighborhood's residents have been accounted for, and no one but the pilot is reported to be injured.
KSL-TV reports the pilot was the only person in the plane.

Residents near the crash site have been asked to evacuate to a church.

The cause of the crash has not yet been determined. Whinham tells the Tribune the aircraft was badly damaged but appears to be a small, noncommercial plane
