WEST VIRGINIA (ABC NEWS) -- Rescue teams are on their way back into the West Virginia mine where four workers are still unaccounted for, after officials deem the air quality safe.

The Coal and Mine Safety spokesperson, Kevin Stricklin, says thirty-two people are heading back into the mine searching to look for survivors.

Crews want to get to the rescue chambers where the miners may be.

Twenty-five miners died Monday after an explosion went off underground.
