Police said two people died after a hot air balloon hit power lines and exploded in Virginia, US, but a search is ongoing for a third person who was also in the balloon's basket.
More than 100 people have joined the search on the ground for the third person, but police have not yet identified the two people who died in the incident.
A police spokeswoman said there were eyewitness reports that two people were seen tumbling from the basket after the balloon caught fire, but said it was unclear if they fell or jumped.
