    Officials Investigating Single-Engine Plane Crash

    Federal authorities are investigating a single-engine plane crash at a Maine camp.

    The Federal Aviation Administration said a Cessna 172 aircraft crashed into trees around 6:30 p.m. at Hidden Valley Camp in Montville. The rural town is located about 49 miles (79 kilometers) southwest of Bangor.

    The camp's owner says the camp had rented the plane and that two employees were on board.

    The camp hired a private pilot to fly the plane.
