Four people are dead after two small planes collided and crashed into some homes in Denver.

Fire officials say the three victims were inside the planes.

At least seven people on the ground suffered minor injuries, including a
two-year-old.

The collision happened over an older northwest Denver
neighborhood. It involved a twin-engine plane and a single-engine
aircraft, which police say either exploded in the air or when it
hit two homes.

A witness said it looked like engine on one of the planes was on
fire before it hit the ground.

Fire crews continue looking for other possible victims.
