Flaming balloon crashes

‘As a hot-air balloon burst into flames and plummeted into an RV park, killing two people, a horrific scene of chaos and a raging inferno ensued, witnesses said.

“I saw the balloon coming down on the front of the trailer and when it hit, it exploded,” said Karen Ashby.

“There were flames and fire, people running. Everybody was in a panic. It was a shock. It was like a war zone here.”

Family members of the two victims were among those who stood powerless on the ground Friday evening, watching as the flaming balloon crashed directly into a trailer.’
