TAYLOR, B.C. — The Transportation Safety Board says two people have died in a plane crash in northeastern British Columbia.

He says the plane crashed and the two people who were onboard were fatally injured.

Krepski says there was also a fire after the crash.

Investigators from Edmonton were expected to arrive on the scene early Saturday afternoon.
