All 10 people aboard a plane that crashed into a hangar at Addison Airport in Addison, Texas, Sunday morning have died, a town official says.

A twin-engine Beechcraft BE-350 King Air crashed just after 9 a.m. Sunday, according to an Addison Fire Department spokesperson.

The Federal Aviation Administration said the plane had just taken off for St. Petersburg, Florida before it crashed into the hangar. There was no one inside the hangar at the time of the crash.  

The aircraft was destroyed by the fire, according to a statement sent out by the FAA.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators arrived at the airport around 7 p.m. Sunday.
