POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Officials say three people were injured when their small plane crashed into a Florida home.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King was quoted by the Sun Sentinel (http://goo.gl/vEvvig) that no one inside the house was injured when the plane hit it Monday afternoon. King said one woman and two men were inside the Hawker Beechcraft 76, and they were all in critical condition.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said in an email that the pilot was practicing takeoffs and landings from nearby Pompano Beach Airpark when the crash occurred.

The Sun Sentinel reports that the plane is registered to Florida Aviation Academy, which runs a flight school at the airpark.

The National Transportation Safety Board will determine the crash's cause.
