A pilot was killed Wednesday night when the small single-engine airplane he was piloting crashed near Athens-Ben Epps Airport.

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, a single-engine Piper PA-24 crashed east of the airport around 7 p.m. The FAA said the pilot was the only person on board and had reported engine problems. Authorities did not offer details on the condition of the pilot.

He said the aircraft caught fire upon impact in a wooded area off Buddy Christian Way, on the side opposite the airport.
