 Three people were killed Friday after a small plane crashed near an airport in the city of Chilliwack in Canada's British Columbia province, local police said.

The Piper PA-34 Seneca, a twin-engine light aircraft, went down on private property beside a motel about 1 km from the local airport at around 2:00 p.m. local time (2100 GMT), killing all on board, including the pilot, said the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in a press release.

"The scene is contained and there were no other reported injuries or risks to the public in the area," it said.

Meanwhile, the Transportation Safety Board of Canada has deployed investigators to determine the cause of the crash.

Pictures from the scene showed a heavy presence of first responders at the property, and the plane's rudder standing upright from behind dense foliage, CTV News reported.

Local authorities have not released the victims' names yet.
