Authorities said two people escaped a fiery plane crash without injuries in Greenwood on Saturday morning.
A captain with the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office said a Border Patrol plane was landing about 11:50 a.m. at the Greenwood County Airport off of Airport Road when it struck a deer. He said the deer ruptured the fuel tank, sparking a large fire and completely destroying the plane.
The fire caused a large grass and woods fire, and firefighters were working to get the fire under control, deputies said.
No injuries were reported in the crash.
Federal Aviation Administration officials will investigate the crash. They said the plane was a Cessna C550.
