Two people were killed Monday morning when their small plane crashed near Lake Berryessa in Napa County, according to authorities.

The single-engine Icon A5 aircraft crashed under unknown circumstances, according to Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

The bodies of those aboard the plane were later recovered, said Capt. Keith Behlmer, a spokesman for the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.

According to Gregor, a 911 caller reported the crash about 9 a.m., but firefighters initially had trouble locating the crash site near Napa County’s largest lake.
