Sydney (dpa) - A fire engine could have crashed in the fire area of Australia. Contact with the plane, which was underway in the mountains in the state of New South Wales, broke off, the fire department said. There was therefore evidence of a possible crash. Helicopters helped with the search. New South Wales is particularly hard hit by the bushfires that have raged in southeastern Australia for months.
