According to Grant County Fire Chief John Crosby, a plane crashed around 9:30 Thursday night about five miles north of the Ulysses airport near Rd. 7. Two people were killed in the crash.

Authorities on the scene said the crash site is on fire and there is a lot of debris scattered. Daniel Dunn, 68, and Michael Steele, 64, both of Scott City died in the crash.
