Las Vegas (Nevada)

(CNN) -- Six people died Thursday when their small airplane crashed during takeoff at the North Las Vegas Airport, according to a county official.

The single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza had just gotten airborne at 1:20 p.m. (4:20 p.m. EST) when it appeared to stall and then crash into a ditch south of the runway and burst into flames, said Hillary Grey, public affairs manager for the Clark County Department of Aviation, citing witness reports.

No one survived the crash, the cause of which would be investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board, she said.
