A small plane has crashed into a house in Colorado, causing no injuries.

It’s thought that only the pilot was on board and no one was at home at the time of the crash. Firefighters were called to the house in Northglenn some 12 miles north of Denver after the plane crashed into the front of the two-storey property through the roof, causing extensive damage.

Witnesses have reportedly said the plane was struggling to stay in the air and the pilot walked away unharmed from the crash. He was later taken to a local hospital.

The cause of the crash is being investigated.

Difficult words: extensive (large), reportedly (according to what some people say), struggle (to try very hard).
