Missouri Company Employed Workers at West Virginia Power Plant Where Fire Rages

MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) _ Workers at a West Virginia power plant

that was the site of a fatal fire are employed by a Kansas City

company.

The fire at American Electric Power's Kammer-Mitchell Plant in

Moundsville continues to smolder.

That's delaying the search for the body of a worker presumed

dead inside after the blaze broke out yesterday.

Officials say the worker was one of several inside a smokestack

yesterday. Three others were trapped for two hours before a

helicopter dropped down and plucked them off. All three are in

stable condition.

The cause hasn't been determined.

The workers are employed by Kansas City-based Pullman Power

LLC.
