Firefighters and deputies have located the wreckage of single-propeller plane that crashed Friday in Sylmar, but there was no immediate word on survivors, according to a Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman.

The crash near the Golden State (5) Freeway was reported at 2:52 p.m., said county fire department spokesman Marvin Lin.

“It’s actually in the hills above the Sunshine Canyon Landfill, near the intersection of Sunshine Canyon and San Fernando Road,” said county fire department spokesman Sean Ferguson.

The search for the wreckage was joined by city firefighters and deputies from the Santa Clarita station, Lin said.

The search, which ended at 5:12 p.m., was hampered by difficult terrain and poor visibility, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart and Lin.

Firefighters and deputies are at the scene, but there was no immediate word on injuries or survivors, Lin said. The county fire department had no immediate information regarding the tail number, where the plane took off or how many people were on board, he added.
