Official: Woman pulled from blast site was dead


 WAYNE, Mich. (AP) -- A fire official in Michigan says searchers have found the body of a woman in the rubble left by an explosion that leveled a furniture store.
Rescuers had vowed to search through the night but found her body late Wednesday. Her name wasn't released.
The suspected natural gas explosion at 9 a.m. Wednesday killed a store salesman and severely injured the owner.
Earlier Wednesday night, searchers found the body of the 64-year-old salesman. The search teams using dogs found James Zell of Westland about 7:15 p.m.
Sixty-four-year-old Paul Franks, the owner, is in serious condition at the University of Michigan medical center.
The city has declared a state of emergency and is seeking state financial aid for the search.
