A plane crashed on takeoff in northern Ohio Monday, killing four people, police told ABC affiliate WEWS-TV.

The plane was taking off at about 10 p.m. from Cuyahoga County Airport when the accident happened. Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Brant Zemelka told the Cleveland station that it appears the plane lost power.

After that, it “just nose-dived into the ground and caught fire,” Zemelka said.

Neighbors also reported the plane sounding like it was having trouble before the crash.

Mark Gerald yelled for his son to call 911 and then ran toward the wreckage, but then the fuel tank exploded.

“I got up really as close as I can, but it was just too hot, too involved,” Gerald said. “There was nothing I could do.
