Minden-based firefighting air tanker crashed Friday in Southern California, killing its crew of two as they returned from a fire in Arizona, officials said.

The identities of the pilots, employees of Minden Air Corp., were not being released and few details of the 11:30 a.m. crash were available. The plane, a twin-engine P-2V, was not fighting a fire when it went down.
