Four people died at the airport in the northern New Mexico community of Angel Fire after the single-engine plane they were traveling in crashed as it was taking off.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Lynn Lunsford says the cause of the crash was unknown, but noted that the area was experiencing heavy winds at the time of the crash Sunday afternoon. The plane's destination wasn't immediately known.

No information was available about the two adults and two children aboard the single-engine Mooney plane. State police say there were no survivors in the crash.

Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are on their way to the site.

Angel Fire is located 150 miles northeast of Albuquerque. The plane was owned by a company in Scottsville, Texas.
