SEDONA, Ariz. - Teenage brothers from Utah died in one of two fiery, small plane crashes in northern Arizona over the weekend.
 
Mohave County sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter says 19-year-old Daulton Whatcott was flying a single-engine Cessna that crashed just south of Interstate 15 near the Arizona-Utah border on Sunday. He and his 16-year-old brother, Jaxon, of Clinton, died en route to Mesquite, Nevada.
 
The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash and another one near Sedona that happened just hours earlier.
 
Authorities recovered the remains of four people Monday from a rugged wilderness by helicopter. Their identities haven't been released.
 
The Federal Aviation Administration says it is unsure of the flight plan for the single-engine Cessna that sparked a small fire when it crashed around 3 p.m. Sunday. Firefighters were working to extinguish the 25-acre fire.

The NTSB is investigating the accident, but are unsure where the plane originated from.
