Memmbers of a close-knit South Florida real estate firm are grieving after a plane carrying seven colleagues hit a building and exploded into a fireball the day before in Akron, Ohio.

Pebb Enterprises, at 7900 Glades Road just outside Boca Raton, said in a statement Wednesday that "our hearts are broken" with the "unimaginable loss" of the seven. "We are shocked and deeply saddened for the families, colleagues and friends of those who perished," the statement read. "Our first priority is to give our fullest support to the family members and loved ones of our co-workers."
