Searchers on Tuesday found the body of a second victim of a Christmas Eve explosion at Exxon’s giant refinery here that damaged buildings six miles away.

Officials said they were trying to determine whether the second body was that of an Exxon worker missing since the blast.

Investigators from Exxon were working to determine the cause of the explosion. The Christmas Eve fire engulfed two large storage tanks, holding a combined 3.6 million gallons of heating oil, and three smaller tanks, officials said.
