A small plane has crashed in a grocery store parking lot, and a firefighter says there are multiple fatalities. Easton firefighter Darren Stone says the number of deaths is uncertain. He also did not know whether any of those killed were on the ground.

The crash of the single-engine plane in the Hannaford's grocery store parking lot happened at about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday.

Store manager Arthur Dechellis says he heard an explosion and when he looked outside a two-seat plane was on fire. He says the plane crashed in a remote corner of the parking lot where people rarely park and no cars were hit.

He says the store remains open and customers are going in and out.
