Officials say a small plane has crashed in North Vancouver, B.C.

Sgt Sue Tupper with North Vancouver RCMP says crews were called to McKeen and Pemberton Avenues just after four p.m., Sunday.

The plane was flying from Langley to Tofino when it crashed, according to spokesperson Sophie Wistaff from the Transportation Safety Board.

Investigators at the scene speculated that there may have been some kind of power loss.

"We're still trying to determine if it was hydro lines or cable lines".

At this stage, it's unclear what might have caused the crash though one woman on Global TV News said that she saw the plane but didn't hear any engine noise.

"It's very fortunate, it could've been a lot worse", assistant fire chief Jim Bonneville said. "I'm surprised there was no leaking fuel with the way it's sitting".

Bonneville said one of the wings of the plane is resting on a guy wire from a telephone pole.

Authorities also said the plane's passengers were lucky the barbed wire from the fence they struck didn't cut into the cockpit where they were seated.
