SYDNEY (AFP) - Australia was on Wednesday investigating an account from a sailor who said she might have seen Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 on fire, as officials said the hunt for the plane could dive much deeper.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (Atsb), which is leading the search at the request of the Malaysian government, is looking at the claim from a British yachtswoman made this week.

 "The Atsb received... a message from a member of the public, reporting that they had seen what they believed to be a burning aircraft in the sky above the Indian Ocean on the night of the disappearance of MH370," a spokesman said in an email. "That information has been forwarded to the Atsb's MH370 Search Strategy Working Group for review."

Flight MH370, which was en route from Kuala Lumpur to the Chinese capital Beijing when it inexplicably diverted, is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean.
