Three people are dead after another small plane crash at the Centennial Airport south of Denver.

A South Metro Fire official says the plane went down just after taking off. Spokesman Andy Lyon says the twin-engine Cessna 421 reported engine problems just before it crashed and burst into flames. The FAA says one engine apparently stopped working.

No names have been released. Lyon says the victims were two men and a woman.

A week ago, another twin-engine plane went down after takeoff at the same airport. That crash killed two people -- Paul Krysiak of Aurora and James Presba of Lone Tree.
