Four killed in Nevada plane crash

November 28, 1997

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) _ A twin-engine plane crashed into a hangar at an airport Thursday in a deadly fireball that killed all four people on board.

Stacey Giomi of the Carson City Fire Department said there was no possibility of rescue because of the intense heat, even though the crash occurred right behind a fire station and crews responded within 90 seconds.

Firefighter Jeff Davis witnessed the crash.

``It made a very hard left turn, then pretty much went nose down right into the hangar,″ he said.

The plane, the hangar and another plane parked inside were destroyed by the inferno. The victims remained at the crash site pending the arrival of representatives of the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board.

Investigators could not determine where the plane was from because the fire was so hot it obliterated identification numbers on the craft.
