Virginia State Police say one body has been recovered from a hot air balloon that hit a power line, caught fire and crashed.
   
Spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Saturday searchers are continuing to look for two other occupants of the balloon, which went down Friday night in Doswell.
   
She said because of the time elapsed since the crash, the search has moved from a rescue to a recovery operation.
   
The wreckage of the balloon has yet to be found as well.
   
Witnesses say they saw the balloon in flames and heard screams for help.
   
Geller says two occupants either fell or jumped from the balloon.
