BRAITHWAITE, LA (WVUE) -

No injuries have been reported following a plane crash in Braithwaite.

A small seaplane crashed on Wednesday morning, according to Eric Becnel with the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Department.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a Cessna 206 on floats lost engine power on takeoff. It clipped some electrical lines and crash landed, coming to a rest in front of a house in the 3600 block of Highway 39. Four people were on board. No injuries have been reported.

Fire crews were on the scene as a precaution. 

The parish president's office said the plane was trying to make an emergency landing after fuel in one of its tanks ran out and the other fuel tank did not activate.

The plane was damaged

The plane is registered to Southern Seaplane Inc. in Belle Chasse.

The FAA is investigating the crash.
