As of 3 pm

They have sent 2 more rescue teams in after the miners.

The last bore hole they dug hit a solid seam of coal and could not be used.

They have pumped in nitrogen to put out the burning fire (at least in the area of that particular bore hole)

There is still one emergency shelter yet to be checked. The shelters have run out of time for oxygen but the supply is for 15 people. Since there are only 4 people missing there is a minute chance of life still.

We keep hoping. (link to local news station)
