Nine people were killed when an air ambulance crashed in a resort area near the Philippine capital on Sunday, causing a huge fire, authorities said.

Dramatic videos on social media showed emergency vehicles rushing toward a burning building in Calamba City as authorities urged people to leave the area for safety.

After successfully extinguishing the fire, rescuers found nine bodies in smoky heap, believed to be passengers on a King Air 350 light aircraft.

“No one survived the crash. We conclude that all passengers have been confirmed to have died” local emergency officer Jeffrey Rodriguez said.

Police said two locals were injured in the crash and rushed to them to the hospital, authorities did not report any deaths from residents of the resort area when the plane crashed.

The Philippine aviation authority said it was transporting a patient and medical team from the south of the country to the capital when it disappeared from radar about 46 kilometers from here.

The area where the air ambulance crashed is home to several resort-filled resorts during the summer.
