A Russian military jet crashed into a Siberian two-family home Sunday, killing two Russian pilots, officials said.

Residents of the two-story building were not at home at the time of the fiery collision.

In a Telegram post, the Russian region’s governor Igor Kobzev said the plane slammed into the building — where two families were housed — in the city of Irkutsk.

Kobzev also shared video showing firefighters climbing over the wreckage and pouring jets of water over the rubble.

The plane was a Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jet on a test flight, according to officials.

Videos of Sunday’s incident posted to social media showed the jet nosedive almost vertically before crashing in a dramatic fireball that filled the air with thick black smoke.

Russia’s state investigative committee announced a criminal probe was underway over possible air safety rules.

No weapons were carried aboard the jets.

The fatal crash was the second in just six days involving a Sukhoi fighter plane.

Last Monday, a Sukhoi Su-34 crashed into an apartment block in the southern Russian city of Yeysk, near Ukraine, killing at least 15 people and injuring 19. The cause was a technical malfunction, authorities said after an initial investigation.

Sunday’s fiery crash is the 11th time a non-combat crash of a Russian warplane has occurred since Moscow invaded Ukraine Feb. 24.
