    MILAN, Italy (CNN) -- A small plane has hit a skyscraper in central Milan, setting the top floors of the 30-storey building on fire and killing at least one person.

    There were conflciting reports as to whether it was a terrorist attack or an accident after the pilot of the Piper tourist plane reported that he had lost control.

    The plane, en route from Sofia in Bulgaria to Rome, Italy, smashed into the Pirelli building's 26th floor at 5:50 p.m. (1450 GMT) on Thursday.

    There were reports of office workers trapped in the building's elevators.

    The building houses government offices and is next to the city's central train station. Several storeys of the building were engulfed in fire.

    Italian TV showed a huge gaping hole in the side of the Pirelli building with smoke pouring from the opening.

    RAI state TV reported that the plane had apparently radioed an SOS because of engine trouble.

    Earlier though, in Rome, the senate's president, Marcello Pera, said it "very probably" appeared to be a terrorist attack.

    Police and ambulances are at the scene. Many people were on the streets as they left work for the evening at the time of the crash.

    TV pictures from the scene evoked horrific memories of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the collapse of the building's twin towers.

    "I heard a strange bang so I went to the window and outside I saw the windows of the Pirelli building blown out and then I saw smoke coming from them," said Gianluca Liberto, an engineer who was working in the area told Reuters.

    The building is known as the Pirelli skyscraper but the Italian tyre and cable company does not operate out of the building.

    The Pirelli skyscraper, located near the central train station, is one of the world's tallest concrete buildings. It is about 415 feet high and was designed in the 1950s by architects Gio Ponti and Pier Luigi Nervi. The building is one of the main symbols of Milan, along with the city's cathedral.

    This is sad bro, that was milans biggest skyscraper, all constructed from concrete....

    Milan is a beautiful city, i used to go to a place called roxy rings thats about 10 min from the place that was hit. It was a cool ass bar that had a skate park in the basement and like 8 different dance floors, including a hip hop one where all the italians break danced at....lots of graffiti, and all the walls were legal in it....it was a pretty dope place..
