HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- A tanker fire is still burning five days after it destroyed an eastern Montana oil recycling plant.

Wibaux Fire Chief Brian Nelson said Wednesday he is not sure what is inside the tanker truck to keep it burning since Saturday's explosion.

Nelson says firefighters poured foam down the tanker's vents Tuesday but failed to extinguish the blaze.
