At least two miners have been killed and 20 others injured in a reported mine explosion in Ouray, Colorado.  Emergency workers are trying to reach two others trapped in the mine.  The “Watch” newspaper reported there was an explosion at the mine but Ouray County spokeswoman Marti Whitmore says she does not know what took place there. Mine Manager Rory Williams of the Star Mining Company told the paper that the injuries came from miners breathing gases and chemicals in the air after an explosion.
