The death toll has risen to 32

Three American firefighters were killed today (Thursday), after a plane crashed to extinguish the flames on board in southeastern Australia, where forest fires again spread due to strong winds.

Hours after the loss, the authorities announced that the plane had crashed near Cooma, 120 km south of Canberra, and three Americans on board were killed.

David Mattelbraud, the Minister of Emergency Situations, stated that this tragedy indicates the risks that firefighters face to protect others.

Details of the accident were not immediately known, but the chief of the firefighters in rural areas of New South Wales Shine Vitsimons pointed out very difficult flying conditions due to the wind, according to “France 24”.

This brings the death toll from Australia’s fires to at least 32 people since the crisis began in September.

The three highly experienced Americans worked for the Canadian company “Coulson Aviation”, which was asked to contribute to extinguishing the fires.

The seasonal disaster, which was disastrous this year, witnessed a decrease in the past days due to the rains and low temperatures, but the firefight resumed on Thursday with the announcement of an emergency situation regarding at least seven fires.
