Four Bodies Found on Plane that Crashed into School

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities searching through the wreckage of a
small plane that nosedived into an Arizona high school and exploded
say they have found four bodies - two more than expected.

Apache County sheriff's Sgt. Richard Guinn says officials were
working Saturday to identify the bodies.

Officials had previously thought only two people were aboard the
single-engine Piper that crashed Friday afternoon into a building
at the school Friday afternoon in the small eastern Arizona town of
Eagar.

Guinn says no one was in the two-story building when the plane
hit.

Two hours after the crash, flames were still erupting 20 feet
above the building. Crews worked on the blaze overnight, and the
building was still smoldering Saturday.
