CENTRAL OREGON -- As was reported yesterday an Oregon-owned C-130 Hercules aerial water tanker crashed while fighting wildfires in Australia, killing three people. Three firefighters from Central Oregon told the Bend Bulletin they are safe. James Osborne from Sisters and Prineville fire fighters Norm Sealing and Tavis Fenske have been in Australia working on fires. In an email Fenske said, “We are all fine here. Our hearts go out to families of lost firefighters.’” The three were sent to Australia earlier this month to help fight wildfires that have devastated the landscape, killed more than 2-dozen people and millions of animals.
