OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha Police have identified one of the two men killed in Monday's explosion and fire at an animal feed processing plant.

Police said 53-year-old Keith Everett was the victim rescuers recovered Monday evening.

The other victim's body remains inside the unstable plant. Rescuers plan to renew their efforts to reach that victim Tuesday morning.

Besides the two people who were killed, 10 other workers at the International Nutrition plant were hospitalized.

Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger says it could be weeks before investigators are able to determine what caused the industrial accident.
