Museum Fire in Arizona still out of control, already consumed more than 1,000 acres

wildfire in northern Arizona has charred more than 1,000 acres, as hundreds of firefighters vowed Tuesday to save homes and utility lines that could be in the blaze’s path.

The so-called Museum Fire, just north of Flagstaff in the Coconino National Forest, hasn’t been dented yet, despite the efforts of hundreds of firefighters from multiple local, state and federal agencies.

“We have close to 600 personnel on the fire right now as we speak, we have zero containment at this point,” the incident commander, Rich Nieto, told reporters Tuesday morning. “I expect as we go further with this, that’ll go up. For right now, that’s what we’re looking at.”

PITTSBURGH STEELERS: Two days to Latrobe: The battles to watch | WPXI

PITTSBURGH – Prior to the days of offseason training activities (OTAs), training camp was all about the position battles that would take place.

OTAs changed that dynamic — at least somewhat — but football in shorts, as Mike Tomlin likes to call the offseason program, isn’t a true measure of a player.

Trump administration to propose rule that would cut 3.1 million people from food stamp program: report | Fox News

The Trump administration is set to propose a rule Tuesday that would cut about 3.1 million Americans from the food-stamp program in an effort to save taxpayers about $2.5 billion a year, reports said.

The U.S. has seen low levels of unemployment, which is seen as a major factor in low levels of participation in the program. President Trump tweeted earlier this month that food stamp use is at a 10-year low. Politifact verified the claim.

Reuters, citing a U.S. Department of Agriculture, reported that residents in 43 states who receive help from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, automatically enroll in the food-stamp program, known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, or SNAP.

Fox News’ Shep Smith Grills Embattled Puerto Rico Governor: Can You Name Anyone Who Supports You?

During his first television interview since the scandal broke out over leaked private chats that have resulted in near-unanimous calls for his resignation, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló struggled to come up with a single name when Fox News anchor Shepard Smith pressed him to offer up anyone who currently supports him.

With hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans taking to the streets of San Juan on Monday to demand Rosselló’s resignation after the governor said he wouldn’t step down on Sunday, Smith pointed out that “corruption is rampant” on the island before highlighting why the profanity-laced leaked chats have caused such backlash.

Four Inmates Faked a Fight to Escape Florida Juvenile Detention Center

Four teenage inmates staged a fight inside their dorm-style cell late Saturday night at a Florida juvenile detention center as a ruse to escape, overpowering staff and stealing a staff member’s car and a cell phone as they fled.

Two of teens who escaped from the Florida Department of Juvenile justice facility in Jacksonville, remained at large Sunday and a manhunt was underway to apprehend them.

According to a tweet from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, the four inmates faked a brawl in their room and then attacked the staff who responded to the scuffle.

The boys were then able to overpower staff in the center’s control room and pushed several buttons until one released the jail’s main door. The boys then stole car keys from the handbag of one of the staff members and made off in the dark of the night with the a four-door Infiniti Q50 with Florida license plate LANE19.

The foursome also took the staff member’s county-issued cellphone and wallet with an unknown amount of cash.
