By The Associated Press

DENVER (AP) ¯¯¯ The military says four crew members have died in the crash of an Air Force tanker plane that was fighting a fire in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

The North Carolina Air National Guard said Tuesday the other two crew members were injured.

The dead are Lt. Col. Paul K. Mikeal (MY-kuhl), Maj. Joseph M. McCormick, Maj. Ryan S. David (dah-VEED) and Senior Master Sgt. Robert S. Cannon. All were from North Carolina.



The crash prompted the military to temporarily ground the seven remaining Air Force tankers used in firefighting.

Six tankers were cleared to resume flying Tuesday. The seventh, which was also part of the North Carolina Air National Guard, returned to its home base.
