Death Toll Raised In Georgia Sugar Plant Explosion

Officials say crews have found another body in the remnants of a Georgia sugar refinery plant devastated by an explosion and fire.
That raises the death toll to five and leaves three others still
missing.
The body was found after crews shored up the plant's wobbly
remnants. Three workers and a supervisor are believed to be
missing, but it's not clear whether the body is that of a worker or
the supervisor.
The search is expected to be suspended for the night, and resume
again tomorrow.
Crews re-entered what was left of the Imperial Sugar Company
refinery in Port Wentworth, near Savannah, after stabilizing the
upper floors of the four-story building.
