Three people are dead and no survivors were reported after a jet crashed near a golf course in the Lake Tahoe area of California on Monday.

At around 1:18 p.m., a Bombardier CL 600 went down as the pilot attempted to land at Truckee-Tahoe Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration told the Washington Examiner in an email. A wildfire was sparked after the incident, though it was quickly extinguished and it did not spread.
