San Francisco plane crash debris catches fire

Six days after Asiana Airlines flight 214 crashed in San Francisco it’s still dangerous to be around the debris. A fire broke out Friday morning as workers were cleaning up the mess. Firefighters quickly got it under control.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues. Now, investigators say that two of the three pilots in the cockpit called to abort the landing just seconds before the plane’s tail hit a seawall and broke off. The plane was going too slow to land safely, but the flight recorder didn’t show any discussion of the speed until just nine seconds before the crash.
