(AP) -

Authorities say six people aboard a Cessna airplane were killed when it crashed in northern Wisconsin.

The Price County Sheriff's Office says the airplane crashed at 3:21 a.m. Saturday near the city of Phillips.

The crash victims were all adults, but no names have been released.

The sheriff's office says the plane had left from Chicago and was heading to Canada on a fishing trip.

National Transportation Safety Board investigators say there was a discussion between the pilot of the plane and air traffic controllers about "local weather phenomenon."

Soon after, the aircraft dropped off radar.
