SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco's fire chief says the two people who died in the Asiana airlines crash were found outside of the heavily damaged jetliner.
   
Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said late Saturday that she did not know the ages or genders of the victims.
   
Asiana Flight 214 from Seoul had more than 300 passengers and crew members aboard when it made a hard landing, lost a tail and caught on fire at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday morning.
   
More than 180 people were taken to nine area hospitals, but the majority had relatively minor injuries. As of Saturday evening the number of fatalities stood at two while at least five people were reported in critical condition.
