A pilot was killed after the plane he was flying crashed in a wooded area in Doylestown (Bucks County) Tuesday morning, authorities said.

Photos from 6abc's Chopper 6 show the single-engine small red-and-white plane in the trees behind houses in the 3000 block of Charter Club Drive around 10:30 a.m.

The pilot, Martin Sailer Jr., of Tinicum Township, was the sole occupant of the plane and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Buckingham Township Police Department.

The crash also reportedly sparked a small fire.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating the crash.
