The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Search and re­cov­ery per­son­nel found the body of an­other worker Sun­day in the rub­ble of a north­ern Illi­nois sil­i­cone plant that ex­ploded and burst into flames two days ago, bring­ing the death toll to three em­ploy­ees with one more body be­lieved to be in the de­bris, a fire of­fi­cial said.

Waukegan Fire Mar­shal Steve Lenzi said the body was found as first re­spon­ders re­sumed searching in haz­ardous con­di­tions in the shat­tered re­mains of the AB Spe­cialty Sil­i­cones plant in Waukegan, about 50 miles north of Chicago.

Nine work­ers were there when an ex­plo­sion rocked the build­ing Fri­day night.
