LAC-MEGANTIC, Quebec (AP) - With two train cars still burning, there are fears of more explosions in a lakeside town in eastern Quebec.
The 73-car train was carrying crude oil derailed early Saturday morning, setting off a series of explosions and fires that have killed at least five people and destroyed much of Lac Megantic's downtown. Police say at least 40 people have been reported missing and the death toll could go higher.
Firefighters are still trying to extinguish two burning tanker cars but are keeping a distance in case of more explosions
