Two people were killed in an aircraft crash at Apple Valley Airport on Sunday, prompting all flights in and out to be halted, the Apple Valley Fire Protection District tweeted.

The crash occurred at the Apple Valley Airport, located at 21600 Corwin Road, according to a tweet around 2:20 p.m. The aircraft involved was a L39 Jet.

Two people died in the crash, the district said. It was not known if anyone else was involved in the incident, but several websites showed the L39 Jet is a small aircraft with two seats.

Crews worked to extinguish a fire after multiple explosions occurred after the crash, and all flights in and out of the airport were halted.
