(Newser) – A passenger plane crashed and caught fire today near the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, but many passengers seem to have escaped before the fire started, Russian media outlets are reporting. Different reports have one or two people dead, out of the 36 people aboard the plane, Reuters reports. The plane, a medium-sized turboprop, was flying from Odessa to Donetsk, according to the BBC. It's unclear if it crashed at Donetsk airport or near it.
