Thirteen people confirmed dead and 37 missing after a train derailment and explosion in Lac-Megantic, Quebec early Saturday. The driverless, runaway fuel train that exploded in a deadly ball of flames in the center of the small Quebec town started rumbling down an empty track just minutes after a fire crew had extinguished a blaze in one of its parked locomotives according to witnesses.
