It's not known how many people were on board the plane - identified as a six-seater Piper PA-32 by the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) - which came down in a wooded area northwest region of the city core, but police said no one aboard survived.

Const. Ash Gutheinz says the aircraft went down around the supper hour on Wednesday and residents of the area were not at risk.

"I don't have any information about (the weather) but that is something we're going to take a close look at", Krepski said.

A small airplane crashed in eastern Canada Wednesday evening causing "numerous fatalities", police said.

Late Thursday they released pictures of the crash scene.

TSB spokesman Chris Krepski says four investigators are on scene, examining and documenting the wreckage.

TSB spokesperson Rox-Anne D'Aoust said in the morning that the plane took off from Toronto's Buttonville Municipal Airport in Markham, north of Toronto, and was headed to Kingston's airport. Environment Canada warned of "strong southwesterly winds gusting to 80 km/h".

A spokesman for Canadian Forces Base Trenton said a military helicopter dealt with high winds while it searched for the crash site.

He says the area was under a wind advisory at the time, and while winds may not have been as bad as predicted, it was certainly "blustery".

Kingston Police have kept roads closed around the crash site Thursday morning.
