VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — The two people aboard a small plane walked away uninjured after crashing in a yard while attempting to land near Vancouver.

Clark County Sgt. Tony Barnes says the private aircraft was trying to set down Sunday evening at the Brush Prairie Aerodrome.

He says pilot Philip Allen of Portland reported that he lost control of the aircraft and his landing gear caught a fence wire. Allen was traveling with his wife.

There was no report of any damage to any homes. Barnes says a rabbit hutch had damage but no animals were hurt.

He says the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
