Celebrities tweet fiery plane crash at Colorado airport

Private jet crashed 100 miles southwest of Denver

Reports are coming in about a fiery plane crash in Aspen, Colo. Sunday afternoon.

The plane was coming into Aspen Airport from Tucson, Arizona when it crashed upon landing.  

Three people were aboard the plane. One person was killed and the two others were injured - one of them severely, according to Colorado officials.

Comedian Kevin Nealon took to Twitter after witnessing the crash. 

Country music star LeAnne Rimes also saw the plane go down.  

It's not clear how many people were on the aircraft, which appears to be a midsized private jet.

Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, is about 100 miles southwest of Denver.
