DELAND, Fla. (AP) - Witnesses say the pilot and passenger of a small experimental plane climbed out with their clothing ablaze after it sputtered and crashed into a supermarket at a Florida shopping center.
 
Authorities say five people were injured and frightened shoppers ran from the complex.
 
Broadcast station WFTV reported on its website that a manager in the supermarket meat department was able to put out the fire in their clothes and rush the pilot and passenger outside for help.
 
Callers to 911 say the plane showed signs of trouble moments before it crashed.
 
Police say the plane had taken off from a nearby municipal airport in DeLand, near Daytona Beach.
 
The police spokesman added that three people had suffered severe burns and two others had moderate burns.
 
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said a pilot and a passenger from the plane were airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
