The pilot escaped injury when a small plane crashed Monday in a remote part of eastern Stanislaus County, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The Bellanca 7GCBC Citabria went down for an unknown reason at about 5:45 p.m. about two miles northeast of Modesto Reservoir, said an email from Ian Gregor, public affairs manager for the Federal Aviation Administration Pacific Division.

No one else was on board the plane, which caught fire, he said.

The California Highway Patrol reported that the plane clipped power lines and started a grass fire in the area of Crabtree Road.

Gregor said the Federal Aviation Administration information is preliminary. This agency and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

It was the county’s second aircraft accident in 11 days. A small plane crash-landed onto Highway 99 at Crows Landing Road on September 27th. The pilot had minor injuries, and southbound traffic was delayed for a few hours.
