Reports are that there were two occupants who were able to free themselves from the aircraft before it burst into flames.

It is believed up to 80 litres of fuel onboard led to the fire that incinerated the plane but CFA crews quickly responded to bring the fire under control.

The incident happened about 10.30am.

More details to come.
