Georgia Refinery Explosion

Headline: 62 Burned, 6 Missing Following Georgia Refinery Blast

An explosion in a sugar refinery last night sent 62 people to the hospital, some severely burned. The refinery is located in Port Wentworth, Ga. Lt. Alan Baker of the Port Wentworth Police Department, said, "There was an explosion into the air with debris and a fireball that was probably five or six times as tall as the tallest trees here. It's the biggest explosion I've ever seen in my life." Six people are still missing, as fire crews work to get the fire under control.

Update — CNN is now reporting that six bodies have been found. Rescue efforts are still under way to find any survivors.
