Emergency crews are at the scene of a light plane crash at Kununurra airport.

The single engine Cessna crashed at the north-western end of the runway earlier this morning as it was attempting to take off.

Two people on board walked away with minor injuries and are being treated by ambulance staff.

Senior Sergeant Jack Lee from Kununurra Police says the runway has been closed while crews examine the scene.

"The plane is on its roof, there is some leaking fuel," he said.

"But, the people on board have been taken away and they appear to be ok at this stage."
