Two dead in Butte County plane crash identified as PG&E contractors

Two people were killed in a plane crash Tuesday morning about five miles from Paradise in Butte County.

Sheriff's officials said the two bodies are scorched - the plane was found engulfed in flames - and can't be identified yet. But Paul Moreno, spokesperson for PG&E, identified them as contract workers for the company.

Moreno said one was employed by AA Aerial Services and the other by Frontline Energy Services. The two victims were conducting an air patrol over a natural gas pipeline before the crash.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the employees at AA Aerial Services and Frontline Energy Services and their families," Moreno said.
