Doswell, Virginia:  A second body has been recovered in the fiery crash of a hot air balloon in Virginia.

The balloon drifted into a power line Friday night, burst into flames and crashed. The balloon and the basket holding the pilot also have yet to be located.

The crash occurred ahead of a weekend balloon fest in Doswell, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of Richmond.
