A Warren County official says there "did not appear to be survivors" after a plane carrying two people crashed Tuesday night in Warren County.

According to a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, a Piper PA-32 aircraft crashed into a field off Highway 287 and Sherell Road as it was attempting to land at Warren County Memorial Airport in McMinnville.

"Fire substantially damaged the aircraft," Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen reported in a statement to USA TODAY NETWORK - Tennessee.

Chuck Haston, 911 director for Warren County, said the first call about the crash came in at 6:46 p.m. Dispatchers also received a call from Memphis air traffic control "that they had possibly lost contact with an aircraft in the vicinity," Haston said.

"Due to the condition of the aircraft, it didn't appear as though anyone had survived," Haston said, adding that the 911 center had not yet received official word on the occupants' conditions.

Authorities in Warren County will release the identities and conditions of the two individuals on board, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The National Transportation Safety Board will determine the cause of the crash as the FAA also investigates.

Haston said the Warren County Sheriff's Office has taken over securing the scene until FAA arrives, which will likely be in the morning.

No one from the sheriff's office was available to provide information Tuesday night.
