The Los Angeles County Fire Department searched in the Santa Clarita Valley after reports of a crash of a private plane, but no plane was found.

Los Angeles County Fire Department helicopters searched the Santa Clarita Valley area Friday morning after reports that a private plane crashed about eight to 10 miles south of the Agua Dulce Airport.

The department said it received multiple calls about a plane that had crashed near the Santa Clara Truck Trail and Moody Canyon Truck Trail, but no plane was found.

Officials said that various callers reported seeing smoke, which appeared to be from a prescribed brush fire, and some reported seeing a plane in the area. After an aerial search, officials could not verify that a plane had crashed and have concluded their search.
