MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) - A fire official in the Connecticut city where a power plant exploded says the death toll should stand at five.

Deputy Fire Marshal Al Santostefano told The Associated Press on Monday that state police believe no additional victims are trapped in the rubble of the Kleen Energy plant.

Mayor Sebastian Giuliano says everyone assigned to work at the plant that day has been accounted for.

Giuliano says there have been no recovery efforts there Monday because the site is too unsafe.
