The pilot was able to drop out of the cockpit and call 911. He was being treated at the scene.
No one was home at the time of the crash, an official said, but there were some pets inside.
The plane is almost upside down and most of it can be seen through the burned second-story roof of the home.
Smoke was coming from the house as firefighters from North Metro Fire poured water on the structure. The fire was extinguished by 4:15 p.m. The fire extended from the second story into the basement, a fire department spokeswoman said.
An eyewitness told RTV6 sister station 7NEWS the plane was clearly in trouble as it passed over them.
"It was carrying a large GEICO banner that was probably about 200 feet off the ground," said Shanna Rudd. "The airplane had its nose up as it went down."
There is no airport close to the crash site.
