Remember the sacrifice of the four men that went to the plane and who died when it crashed: pilot Jean Pierre Davenat, co-driver Jacques Ogier, mechanic Roland Denard and the assistant Jack Le Bel.
The fire that had to become tragic began in French territory, because of a car that was burned next to the football field of Pertús. The tramuntana was blowing strong and pushed the flames and the fire went out of control and began to move south. The French sent the DC-6, which left the base of Marinhan, near Marseille. It was a commercial plane that had adapted for the extinction of the fire. The plane sprayed at the Albera and, when it was going to take off to overcome the nose of the Puig de les Canals, a blow from the wind that was facing it destabilized and the nose was embedded against rocks.

I believe I have located this now.
A French DC-6 adapted for firefighting crashed in the Puig de les Canals, in the Albera massif, on July 19, 1986, while working to extinguish a large fire burning around Alt Empordà, and the remains of the device continue to be the site of the tragedy.

I believe jojo is correct and I made a mistake. I found another photo and it doesn't have the TAI logo on the tail. The triangle logo looks like the Securite Civile logo but I couldn't find a blue and white aircraft to match the tail colors. Here is the other photo I located.

Tail section of TAI Flight 307 which was a scheduled flight operated by Transports Aériens Intercontinentaux (TAI) between France and the Ivory Coast via Mali operated by a Douglas DC-7C. On 24 September 1959, the aircraft crashed during its departure from Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport, France when it flew into trees. Following takeoff, the aircraft reached an altitude of 30 metres (98 ft), and failed to climb further before flying into a pine forest located 2,950 metres (9,680 ft) from the end of the runway.
