COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Multiple crews worked Monday morning to get a fully involved structure fire under control at a home in Colonie. When crews responded to the call on Arcadia Court, they say the narrow lanes out front made it so difficult to gain access to the home that they had to break through this fence behind the house. What they found in the sheds back here was even more concerning. “When we got here we were advised that there were some propane tanks back there. We did have some explosions,” Fuller Road fire Chief Chris Ruff said. “We were also advised there was some ammunition possibly in one of the residences – the smaller residence – that was on fire. So that added more hazards to us.” Officials believe the fire began near a shed at #64 and quickly spread

WOODSON TERRACE, Mo. - Christmas lights are still hanging as a reminder of a cold New Year's Eve day that turned into a burning tragedy for Calvin Warren and his family. "I was about to cry that night because we didn't know what we was going to do and I was just devastated," Warren said. Before the blaze took over his home, Warren says he started to see a stream of smoke coming from the attic. What he thought could've been handled by using some fans ended up being a more difficult task. "I couldn't get nothing but cups because the water hose is frozen," Watson said. "So I'm getting cups and water and throwing it on the fire that's dripping so the house wouldn't blow up. That's when the police came in and grabbed me, like, 'Get out the house!'" That quick action saved Warren's life because

PARKLAND, Fla. (AP) — A former student opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle at a Florida high school Wednesday, killing at least 17 people and sending hundreds of students fleeing into the streets in the nation’s deadliest school shooting since a gunman attacked an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. The shooter, who was equipped with a gas mask and smoke grenades, set off a fire alarm to draw students out of classrooms shortly before the day ended at one of the state’s largest schools, officials said.
