Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board provided that information Sunday during an update on their investigation. Officials have said that a single-engine Cessna 210 crashed about 1:10 p.m. Friday at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport and caught fire, killing all four people on board.

Their identities have not been released. The investigation could take up to two years to complete.
