The pilot and passenger of a Cessna 172 suffered minor injures when the plane crashed about 5 p.m. Thursday into the yard of an Eatonville home.
Eatonville Fire Chief Bob Hudspeth said the aircraft was destroyed, but that the occupants, who were headed from Oregon to Seattle, were not seriously hurt.
The pilot took a detour to try to miss a rain squall, Hudspeth said, and the plane crash landed into the yard near Swanson Field, where it came to rest at the front door of a house along Airport Road East.
The damage to the house was minor, and no one was home at the time, Hudspeth said.
The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board were investigating, FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said.
The NTSB is the lead agency for the incident, and the agency usually releases an initial report about accidents about a week later, he said.
