Jaime Foster used to make her mother call her at 5:30 a.m. so she wouldn't sleep through her morning grunt work as a rookie firefighter: the sweeping of floors, the brewing of coffee, the raising of the flag. On Sunday morning, the flag was lowered to half-staff for Foster, 25, who was crushed under the wheels of a hook-and-ladder truck after three months on the job at Reseda's Fire Station 73. In front of the station, her co-workers arranged a memorial with flowers, candles and photos.

Burning brightly in the midmorning heat, the flame snaked its way through the San Fernando Valley on Thursday, borne by Los Angeles city firefighters honoring comrades who went to extinguish blazes and never came home. "I know the type of job we have," said Fire Capt. Percy Jones. "I know when the alarm goes off, it could be the last sound I hear. When a building is burning, people usually run out of it. We run into it."

The Cal State Northridge women's basketball team is still looking for its first victory of the season. The Matadors dropped their eighth consecutive game, losing to Southwest Texas State, 64-45, on Wednesday night in a nonconference game at Matador Gym. For Northridge, which has suffered defeats by as many as 47 and 44 points, at least it wasn't as lopsided. Shannon Crouse scored 13 points for the Matadors, making five of 11 shots. Carrie Dormire had nine points and nine rebounds.
