Posted on Monday, June 24, 2013 2:02pm

One person is reported dead, in the crash of a light plane in a San Luis Obispo industrial park.

It happened at around one this afternoon.   The plane was apparently trying to take off from San Luis Obispo Airport when it had some type of problem, and crashed into an industrial park.

The plane hit a delivery truck, and a building.   CAL Fire sent a hazmat team to the scene, because of concern about chemicals in the building.

There is no word of any injuries on the ground.  Authorities have closed the area, and evacuated some buildings in the Granada Drive area.

The crash scene is about a half mile from the airport.
