VANCOUVER, British Columbia - A hot air balloon burst into flames over western Canada, burning a woman and her adult daughter to death while their families looked on, officials said Saturday. Other passengers leaped to the ground, some with their clothes in flames, witnesses said. Police have confirmed two people are dead and eleven injured after a hot-air balloon caught fire in mid-air before crashing to the ground in a trailer park in Surrey, B.C. (Canada). There were 12 passengers and a pilot on board at the time of the accident. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating the accident and confirmed the people who were fatally wounded were passengers and not people on the ground. One passenger remains in critical condition. "I was watching the whole thing lift off, it ignited while they were in the basket 25 feet off the ground, it just went up all in flames," said one witness. Police confirmed that up to three, large 40-foot trailers caught fire after being hit by exploding propane tanks. Nobody was hurt in those fires, although Patterson reports three families have been left homeless. The cause of the accident is not yet known. Weather conditions were clear at the time of the sunset flight. The hot-air balloon, operated by Fantasy Balloons Charters based in Langley, B.C., was one of several balloons in flight at the time.
