U.S. Coast Guard crews hoped to get a helicopter into the air as dawn broke Monday in their ongoing search for a man missing after an oil and gas platform explosion on a lake near New Orleans.

The Coast Guard says the fire is out at an oil and gas transfer platform that exploded in flames Sunday evening, and there's no sign of pollution from the accident.
Clovelly said it wasn't sure if any oil had been released into Lake Pontchartrain.
A resident who lives two blocks from the blast told The Washington Post Monday that the blast "shook me out of my couch".
A statement from Clovelly Oil said three oil wells near the platform were shut in at the time of the explosion and its one gas well was flowing, but was successfully shut-in shortly after the explosion.
The victims taken to the University Medical Center were taken to the trauma unit for injuries ranging from burns to "blasts" and the other two victims taken to the East Jefferson General Hospital are in stable condition, according to EMS.
Lopinto said there were no reports of structural damage to any homes.
Three of the injured people were Clovelly employees.
