Oh this is sad. 

This afternoon there was a fiery plane crash at the Aspen, Colorado airport. The strange thing is there happened to be a couple of celebrities at the airport at the time, including LeAnn Rimes. 

Comedian Kevin Nealon was the first celebrity to tweet about the accident saying: "Horrible plane crash here at Aspen airport. Exploded into flames as it was landing. I think it was a private jet."

"Fire truck and ambulances were on the scene within minutes," Nealon continued. "I don't believe there are any survivors."

LeAnn, who was also in the area, said: "So sad! Horrible plane crash we just saw happen at the Aspen airport." 

LeAnn was in Aspen for New Year's and has been tweeting photos of her vacation since the last days of 2013. Definitely a sad way to end a vacation. My prayers to everyone involved. 

Here's a view of the accident that a local news channel tweeted.
