Governor Brian Sandoval made the following statement this evening after learning of two U.S. Forest Service plane crashes while fighting Nevada fires:

“Within a matter of hours this afternoon, planes carrying two U.S. Forest Service crews crashed while fighting Nevada fires. Currently, we know of one successful emergency landing in Minden and one potentially far more serious crash Northeast of Pioche. The thoughts and prayers of all Nevadans are with the firefighters, the plane crews and all of their families.”
