GREYMOUTH, New Zealand (WKOW) -- Another explosion Sunday marks the fourth in nine days at a New Zealand coal mine.     

The bad conditions have prevented rescuers from recovering the bodies of 29 miners presumed dead.

There were no injuries from Sunday's blast.

Authorities believe leaking methane gas may have sparked the explosion.

The trapped miners have not been seen since the first blast just over one week ago.
