[SUPER=03-Portland, OR;]


Fire officials say the blaze began this morning because of a mis- communication between employees.
The tank used to make liquid asphalt for highways was believed to contain 28- thousand gallons-- it actually contained much less.
So, when workers began heating the tank, too much vapor built up, and the tank exploded.
Plant officials estimate about 150- thousand dollars in damage.

SCRIPT (NARR:) After a string of false leads -- and frustrating searches -- the grim evidence prosecutors have been looking for may have finally have turned up in a barren field some 20 miles from where Pearl disappeared. Under heavy security, forensics teams have been sent to the sight -- but according to government spokesman, evidence already gathered from the shallow grave point strongly to Daniel Pearl. Not only, police say, has the body been decapitated, but the clothes that remain appear to match those Pearl was wearing when he disappeared. The grave is also close to a small one room building that police believe may have been the site Pearl was held hostage after he disappeared four months ago. Those who led police to the site were arrested this week -- and are believed to be part of the gang of men police have been searching for since January. As for the alleged mastermind behind Pearl's execution -- Sheikh Omar Saeed -- and three other Islamic militants: all have pleaded innocent. Investigators say they still may want to do DNA tests on the body to make certain it is in fact Daniel Pearl's -- proof that could take days -- but in the meantime -- most believe the mystery of Daniel Pearl's whereabouts may finally have been solved.
