- Fire department IDs unit where Honolulu high-rise fire began

HONOLULU (AP) — Fire investigators said Monday the apartment where a deadly fire began in a Honolulu high-rise was near the two units on the 26th floor where the bodies of three victims were found, but they're still working to determine the cause.Some residents told The Associated Press they had trouble hearing sirens and didn't realize there was fire raging until opening their doors.[...] getting sprinklers retrofitted in existing buildings was a taller hurdle, said Robert Solomon, a fire protection engineer with the National Fire Protection Association.Sprinklers in high-rise buildings became part of the building code in 1981, after deadly fires in Las Vegas, said Rob Neale, vice president for national fire service activities at the International Code Council."Any high-rise building that was built prior to that addition of the code, as long as it stayed in that use category, the building code would allow it to stay un-sprinklered," Neale said.

- Investigators seek cause of Oakland fire after crews topple crane
By Hamed Aleaziz - Sunday Jul 9, 2017
Hundreds of people remained displaced Saturday as crews toppled a giant, fire-damaged construction crane — the last obstacle before investigators could determine what caused a huge blaze one day earlier in Oakland.On Sunday, Oakland Fire Department officials expect to enter the burnt-out husk of what was supposed to be the Alta Waverly apartment complex— 196 market-rate units with ground floor retail.On Saturday morning, fire crews continued to shoot water at hot spots in the charred wreckage of the building, which caught fire around 4:30 a.m. Friday, sending flames and smoke above downtown Oakland before being contained a few hours later.Workers knocked down much of the scaffolding surrounding the building as people watched from nearby streets.The teetering crane, which was damaged in the fire and in danger of collapsing, caused fire officials to order the evacuation of residents in the surrounding areas.The developers of the burned building, along with their contractor, rotated the crane and pulled it down into an empty parking lot on Valdez Street on Saturday evening, according to Oakland Fire Department officials.Though the plan had been designed to avoid hitting any buildings, police officers went through the evacuated buildings to make sure all civilians were out of the buildings Saturday afternoon, officials said.“Our goal is to return residents to their homes as swiftly as possible, but only once we've conducted these inspections to confirm it is safe for them to do so,” he said.Residents such as Hernan Carrillo, a 50-year-old AT&T technician who lives in an apartment building next door to the charred construction site on Waverly Street with his wife and young son, are staying with friends as work at the fire site continues.A group of displaced residents met with Angela Robinson Piñon, a spokeswoman with the Oakland Fire Department, at the St. Vincent de Paul center Saturday afternoon to discuss future assistance and when they could potentially return to their homes.

- Insect attack! US West is battling crop-killing swarms
By REBECCA BOONE, Associated Press - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
Experts say this year could be a banner one for Mormon crickets — 3-inch-long bugs named after the Mormon pioneers who moved West and learned firsthand the insect's devastating effect on forage and grain fields.The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service reports "significantly higher Mormon cricket populations" on federal land in southwestern Idaho, agency spokeswoman Abbey Powell wrote in an email to The Associated Press.The bugs can start to be detrimental to rangeland and crops when they number about 8 per square yard, state officials said.Residents in the north-central Oregon town of Arlington started dealing with Mormon crickets in June, scrambling to protect gardens and farm crops and trying to keep the bugs from invading homes through open windows and doors.Police work with transportation officials to post warnings and, if necessary, sand roads fouled by cricket carcasses.
