MONTAGUE, Calif. (AP) - Officials say two men were killed when a small homemade plane crashed in a field in Northern California near the Oregon state line.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor tells The Associated Press the single-engine homebuilt Glasair II plane crashed in the town of Montague under unknown circumstances on Wednesday morning.

Siskiyou County sheriff's spokeswoman Allison Giannini tells the Redding Record Searchlight that deputies responded to the crash at a property in the Big Springs area and found two men dead - 55-year-old Lloyd Rugg of Montague and 77-year-old Larry Graves of Yreka.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash and will try to determine a cause.
