An air tanker has crashed while battling a fire that has scorched more than 130 acres at Yosemite National Park, officials told The San Francisco Chronicle.
“We just don’t know the position of the aircraft or the condition of the pilot,” a spokesman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection told AP.
The plane went down “under unknown circumstances,” an FAA spokesman told CNN.
The blaze known as the Dog Rock Fire began Tuesday afternoon, prompting the closure of Highway 140 into Yosemite and the evacuation of 60 homes, ABC30 reported.
