A National Transportation Safety Board investigator on Tuesday arrived at the scene of a deadly air tanker crash in Utah and began scouring the 600-yard debris field for clues about why the plane went down while battling a wildfire.
"We still have active fire within the perimeter, but they're a little more comfortable that they've got a handle on it," he said. "That doesn't mean the fire is over, but things are looking better."
Iron County Sheriff Mark Gower said it appeared a wing tip hit the ground in a rocky canyon.
