Virginia State Police say at least one person is dead after a helicopter crashed into a townhouse complex in Williamsburg Sunday afternoon, sparking a massive fire.

Additionally, federal, state, and police, along with the Williamsburg Fire Department, are working to identify the pilot of the helicopter.

Peggy Weiss, who lives in the neighborhood, told the Daily Press she saw a small, rickety helicopter crash between two buildings. Police say the remains of Jean L. Danylko, 91, who lived in the condominium that was struck, were recovered at the scene.

The station quoted a witness as saying he heard a "big explosion", while others reported a helicopter flying low before the incident.

In a Twitter message, the FAA described the helicopter as an R44.

Photos shared by the Virginia State police department showed extensive damage to the residential structure, with the worst of the destruction occurring on the second floor.

"The way my house shook - it shook and shook", Sweeney said.

Firefighters spent several hours putting out the blaze.

The National Transportation Safety Board plans a news conference Monday afternoon.

Bristol Commons is near the campus of The College of William & Mary and is located across Ironbound Road from Dillard Field.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
