    A small plane carrying three people plummeted into a residential Long Island street with a fiery crash Sunday, killing two of those aboard as neighbors tried to douse the flames with fire extinguishers and garden hoses, authorities and witnesses said. The single-engine, propeller plane went down around noon in Shirley, shortly after taking off from nearby Brookhaven Calabro Airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.
