At least 357 people are reported dead in Honduras after a fire swept through a prison, the attorney general's office announced. Relatives say some prisoners escaped by breaking through the roof and leaping from the jail. Many died from burns or suffocation in their cells because a guard with keys could not be found. The fire broke out late Tuesday night and took more than an hour to put out. The prison holds more than 800 inmates, much more than its capacity allows. It's not clear what caused the fire.
