Crash investigators say 62-year-old David Sapp was killed on Tuesday when the Piper PA31 plane he was piloting crashed into a home in Madeira on Tuesday afternoon. The intensity of the flames that ignited after the crash were too intense to perform any sort of rescue, officials said.

“At this particular point in time we think the plane was inbound to Lunken Airport,” said Steve Ashbrock, Madeira-Indian Hill fire chief. “There is a report that the aircraft was on a mission of sorts to take photographs of the area.”

All of the occupants who reside in the home have been accounted for.
