(CNN) -- A cargo plane crashed into a commercial building shortly after takeoff from an airport in Nairobi, Kenya, early Wednesday, the country's airport authority said.

All four people on board are feared dead.

The Fokker 50 plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

The Kenyan Red Cross said one body has been recovered from the crash site.

Rescue crews are looking for more.

Because the crash occurred early in the morning, there was no one inside the building, the airport authority said.
