A Civil Air Patrol (CAP) plane clipped an office building and crashed into a commercial building in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, early morning on December 29.

Authorities said the Cessna 172, piloted by Doug Demarest, 42, of Anchorage, crashed into the Brady Building and the nearby Whale Building before igniting a fire.

Demarest, who is believed to be the only one aboard, was killed in the crash. He was first lieutenant with the CAP.

No one on the ground was injured.

The FAA and the NTSB are investigating.
