2 Deaths Confirmed In Omaha Plant Explosion

UPDATE:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha authorities confirm two people died and 10 others were seriously hurt in an explosion and partial building collapse at an animal feed processing plant Monday morning.
   
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says he's been notified about two deaths in Monday's explosion.
   
It's unclear if the death toll will rise as crews sift through the rubble of the International Nutrition plant.
   
Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger says the search is progressing slowly because the structure is unsafe.
   
Kanger said he doesn't believe anyone remaining inside is alive.
   
But officials haven't said how many people didn't make it out.
   
Thirty-eight people were working. Officials say two died, 10 were hospitalized and seven were hurt but refused treatment. They have not said how many of the 19 others escaped.

Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger (KANG'-ur) said Monday that nine workers have been sent to hospitals. He says firefighters are searching the building for anyone who may have been trapped by the blast or the falling debris. He declined to comment on possible fatalities.
    
Family members who have gathered outside the International Nutrition plant say they've received cellphone calls from their loved ones inside who told them one or two people may be missing or trapped.
    
The fire and explosion were reported at 10 a.m. Plant officials declined to comment to The Associated Press.
