MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - A light plane has crashed into a building at a small airport south of metro Phoenix.

Azfamily.com reported that two people were in the plane when it crashed Tuesday Ak-Chin Regional Airport and that they were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening, while the one person in the flight operations building at the time wasn't injured.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said no information was immediately available. Airport Manager Tim Costello did not immediately respond to a call for comment.

The airport is owned and operated by the Ak-Chin Indian Community. It serves the Pinal County communities of Casa Grande and Maricopa and is 44 miles (71 kilometers) southeast of Phoenix.
