Crews on Saturday recovered two more bodies as they struggled with frigid temperatures and ice as thick as two feet (60 centimeters) to search the ruins of a burned-out Quebec retirement home.

Ten bodies of the 32 presumed dead have been recovered.

A massive blaze swept through the three-story building in L'Isle-Verte, about 140 miles (225 kilometers) northeast of Quebec City early Thursday.

Quebec Provincial Police lowered the number of missing from about 30 to 22 based on more detailed information.
