ASHLAND, WI (WSAU) - The Federal Aviation Administration has been brought in to investigate a weekend plane crash that killed two people Saturday evening.

The crash happened just after 6:30 p.m. when a single engine Piper PA-24 Comanche went down about 15 miles northeast of the Ashland airport on Madeline Island.

Weather was good, and Ashland County authorities are not sure why the craft crashed about 200 yards south of the Madeline Island runway.

The names of the victims have not been released.
