A small plane crashed and burned at Lost Trail Pass yesterday about 5:30 p.m.

The twin-engine plane crashed in the Lost Trail Ski Area parking lot, north of the ski lodge. Witnesses said the blaze almost immediately consumed the plane, leaving deputies unsure of how many people were aboard. As of last evening, it had not been determined who owned the plane, where it was coming from or who was on board.

Federal aviation investigators are expected at the scene today. No other details were available.
