NEW YORK, N.Y. - Searching with hands and dogs through scoops of rubble from three apartment buildings levelled in an apparent gas explosion, emergency workers painstakingly looked for signs of two missing people Saturday, though authorities acknowledged the chances were slim.

Meanwhile, investigators worked to piece together exactly what caused the blast that injured 22 people in Manhattan's East Village.
