Update: No survivors in Colo. small plane crash

CENTRAL CITY, Colo. (AP) – Authorities are working to identify the only person believed to be aboard a small plane that crashed in the northern Colorado mountains.

A spokeswoman for the Gilpin County Sheriff’s office, Cherokee Blake, said Thursday that the single-engine plane was severely burned.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Mike Fergus said only the pilot was believed to aboard the Beech C-35, a plane that can have up to four seats.

The sheriff’s office received a call at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday about smoke on Rollins Pass Road. U.S. Forest Service employees found the plane in the Arapaho National Forest.

It’s unclear where the plane was going or where it originated.
