A small plane has crashed into a house in Colorado. Nobody was injured. No one was at home at the time of the crash. Only the pilot was on board the plane, and he walked away from the crash. People later took him to a local hospital.

The plane crashed into the front of the house through the roof. It caused extensive damage to the building. Firefighters came to the house, which is 12 miles north of Denver.

People investigate the cause of the crash. Witnesses said that the plane had problems staying in the air.
