Two people are unaccounted for after a fire in another underground coal mine in West Virginia.

Emergency crews were dispatched to the Melville Mine which is about 60 miles southwest of Charleston.

Officials say the fire began on a belt line inside the mine... But the mine *itself is not on fire.

This blaze occurred less than three weeks after the Sago Mine explosion in Upshur County which claimed the lives of 12 miners.

The sole survivor of that blast remains hospitalized in a light coma.
