BATTLE GROUND -- A Portland couple walked away unhurt from a 1964 Cessna 150D that crashed early Sunday evening into a front yard of a home.

No one in the home was hurt, according to the Clark County sheriff's office.

Pilot Philip Allen of Portland was flying with his wife Penny. He was landing at Brush Prairie Aerodrome when he lost control, his landing gear striking a fence, said Sgt. Tony Barnes.

A rabbit hutch on the property was damaged but no rabbits were injured.
