Three people died Monday in a small plane crash in Piscataquis County.

The Greenville Police Department confirmed that a plane crashed at the Greenville Municipal Airport but referred all questions to the Federal Aviation Administration.

"We don't know very much at this point, we know an aircraft left Pembroke around 9 a.m. this morning and at 11:30 we got a call (informing us of the crash)", Layman said Monday afternoon.
