Authorities say five people have died after a small plane took off from an airport in Arkansas, US.

No one survived the crash near the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, authorities said.

The commercial plane, a twin-engine Beech BE20, flew to Columbus, Ohio.

Everyone on board, including the pilot, was employed by Little Rock-based consulting firm CTEH, the company said.

“We ask everyone to keep the families of the lost and the entire CTEH team in your thoughts and prayers.”

Employees of an environmental consulting firm were on their way to assess an explosion at an Ohio metal factory that killed one person and injured at least 13 others, a company spokeswoman told local news network MSNBC.

Local meteorologists indicated winds of 46 mph (74 km/h) near the airport at the time of the accident.

Lt. Cody Burke, a spokesman for the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters that “the weather was not very good at the time,” but it was not confirmed whether those conditions contributed to the crash.

He said the weather was hampering the investigation and he was still in the “recovery phase.”

The National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the accident.
