SAN MIGUEL LOS LOTES, Guatemala - Emergency crews cautiously resumed search-and-rescue operations Wednesday in towns and villages devastated by the eruption of Guatemala's Volcano of Fire, but time was quickly running out to find survivors of a disaster that killed more than 75 people with another nearly 200 still missing. Thousands of people displaced by the eruption have sought refuge in shelters, many of them of with dead or missing loved ones and facing an uncertain future, unable to return to homes destroyed by the volcano. Firefighters said the chance of finding anyone alive amid the still-steaming terrain was practically nonexistent 72 hours after the volcanic explosion on Sunday.
