At least one person has died after a twin-engine plane crash Sunday morning that caused a small wildfire in the area between Lefthand Canyon Drive and Gold Hill Road, near Ward, northwest of Boulder.

Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, also confirmed that a total of four people were on board the Cessna T337G and that he knew of no survivors. An NTSB investigator is said to be at the crash site on Monday.

Confirmation of the total number of fatalities would be made later after additional investigations of the site, Knudson said.

cmdr. Vinnie Montez of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, said the first call about a plane crash in a heavily wooded area on the 11,000 block of Lefthand Canyon Drive came in at 9:41 AM.

Montez said the intense heat at the site made it impossible for investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration and the Boulder County Coroner’s Office to approach the plane safely on Sunday afternoon.

As the wildfire raged after the crash, an evacuation warning was issued at 10:31 a.m. for residents near the 10000 block of Lefthand Canyon Drive and the towns of Gold Hill and Ward, according to an Everbridge report. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office lifted that evacuation warning at 11:37 a.m.

Despite the dry conditions, multiple agencies from the surrounding areas, including Boulder Mountain Fire, Left Hand Fire, Colorado State Patrol and Indian Peaks Fire, responded to the crash site and managed to limit the spread to about an acre. By Sunday night, it was reportedly 90% contained, with a smaller crew staying at the site all night.

After the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office lifted the evacuation order, local residents thanked fire and rescue teams via social media for their prompt response.

Authorities were unable to provide details of the plane’s departure point, flight route or destination.

The fire was confined to a heavily wooded area and no buildings were damaged.

Montez said several firefighters were dealing with high levels of carbon dioxide and breathing problems at the wreckage site and were being treated at the scene.

He said additional details would be released as they became available.
