There was a fire after the plane crashed that was extinguished by Polk County Fire Rescue personnel.

Four people died Sunday in a plane crash at Bartow Municipal Airport in Florida, CBS Tampa affiliate WTSP reports.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said there were "no survivors" of the crash at Bartow Municipal Airport in Bartow, Florida. Two daughters, a son-in-law and a family friend were also killed, Judd said. They were identified as: 24-year-old Southeastern University student Olivia Shannon, 26-year-old Baltimore teacher Victoria Shannon Worthington, 27-year-old University of Maryland law student Peter Worthington Jr. and 32-year-old Lakeland teacher Krista Clayton. For reasons that are still being investigated, but are likely related to the fog, it crashed shortly after takeoff.

The Worthingtons had arrived in Florida on Saturday for the Christmas holiday, Horstman said.

"There was no chance of survival", Judd told WFLA. The sheriff - at times becoming emotional while speaking of his friend - said he was told Shannon brought cookies for the Bartow airport staff.

"There are several deaths", the statement said.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators are en-route to investigate the crash.

Authorities said John Shannon filed a flight plan Sunday morning to fly to Key West, Florida.

A photographer who was trying to capture the fog at sunrise was recording video that shows the crash, Judd said.
