A three-alarm fire Friday caused $125,000 damage to a strip mall, fire officials said. Five businesses were damaged in the 12:30 p.m. fire at 1151 N. Euclid Ave., Anaheim Fire Division Chief Jerry Austin said. The fire originated in a coin-operated laundry, and investigators were looking at a video game as a potential cause, Austin said. Thirty-six firefighters needed 15 minutes to control the fire, which caused no injuries.

Two mushers closed in Wednesday on the ghost town of Iditarod, the isolated halfway point of the world's longest sled-dog race over the historic Anchorage-to-Nome trail, officials said. The first racer to reach Iditarod, 569 miles along the trail toward the finish line, will receive $2,500 in silver ingots and a silver trophy. Iditarod--the namesake of the 1,149-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race--was the hub of a rich mining region that produced $35 million in gold 80 years ago.

Two women led the male-dominated field today one-third of the way through the marathon Iditarod Sled Dog Race, but the men were nipping at their heels. Dee Dee Jonrowe held a slight edge over three-time champ Susan Butcher when the two women pulled into Nikolai before dawn today. Nikolai is 367 miles from the Anchorage starting line, where 70 teams set out Saturday across the Alaska wilderness in the 1,161-mile race to Nome.

Squid again was the determining factor as Redondo Sportfishing boats filled their tanks and focused on white sea bass at Rocky Point. There is a big concentration of the bass at the point and daily catches have been averaging 10 fish per boat, according to the pier's office. Optimism runs high for an excellent fall run of big white sea bass. The limit at this time of year is three per angler, and they must measure at least 28 inches.

The police and fire departments' eighth annual "Caroling for Cans" food and toy drive will kick off Saturday with four parades winding through different sections of the city. Each parade will consist of a police car, a fire engine, a Salvation Army truck, carolers, Santa Claus and "whoever else wants to join in," Fire Capt. Jerry Austin said. The parades will run from 1 to 5:30 p.m. "It's amazing how many people really get into this every year," Austin said.
A minor acid spill at Anaheim Memorial Medical Center forced the evacuation of 27 employees Monday, officials said. Employees were told to leave the basement area of the building about 8:30 a.m. after a worker noticed that a 55-gallon drum of hydrochloric acid was leaking and giving off a vapor cloud, Anaheim Fire Division Chief Jerry Austin said. The hospital notified fire and hazardous-materials experts, who evacuated the area, which includes a loading dock and cafeteria.
