Authorities originally said at a press conference that four people were killed, but later lowered the toll saying two women had survived the plane crash.
Moore said one of the passengers, a teenage girl, was thrown from the plane when it crashed and survived with only minor injuries. She was taken to the hospital, after telling firefighters what had happened.
Firefighters pulled three bodies from the wreckage and said that there were no injuries from the homes. Two houses were destroyed in the crash and neighboring homes suffered minor damage.
