A plane crash occurred at approximately 9 am local time near Essendon airport in Melbourne, Australia, in an area used mainly by light aircraft. The plane may have clipped a building, causing it to crash and turning it into a fiery blaze.

The charter aircraft crashed into the Direct Factory Outlet shopping mall with 5 people on board.


Ten fire trucks are fighting the blaze, which also caused the police to shut down Tullamarine Freeway in both directions.

There has been no report yet of fatalities.
