A small plane crashed into a building in downtown Anchorage, Alaska early Tuesday morning, and at least one person is dead.

Witness Kent Haina, a 747 captain for UPS, was taking out his trash when he heard the plane circling above him. According to The Blaze, he then saw it rapidly descend before disappearing behind a building. Moments later, he heard a loud bang and saw a cloud of smoke.
