- Francisco De La Mora, 43 years old of Fresno, California.

The plane is believed to be a single engine plane that took off from the South Lake Tahoe airport. Much of the wreckage of the plane was destroyed in the fire, making identification of the plane difficult. There were multiple victims aboard the aircraft, and investigators are currently processing the scene to confirm their identities. No information concerning the identity of the victims, or the plane will be released until positive confirmation has been made. Investigators from the FAA and NTSB will arrive on the scene this afternoon to assist with the investigation.
