CBS reported two dogs were rescued from inside the burning home, but later ran from the scene.
The small plane departed from Orange County Airport and stopped for fuel at Sky Acres in LaGrangeville. It was heading from Sky Acres to Farmingdale in Long Island when it crashed into the home in Dutchess County, NBC reports.
The house was quickly engulfed in flames and officials say was destroyed.
"I saw the house completely engulfed in flames," neighbor Rick Plambeck told ABC News. "There was a woman in the house and she jumped out of the window onto a ladder with her dog and she told us that there was a man in the house, which was her father. But we didn't know or see him at all. The plane was in the back of the house, on the back porch."
The FAA and NTSB are still investigating the cause of the crash.
