Emergency shelters used to protect workers battling forest fires from intense heat can turn into firetraps when touched by flames, the U.S. Forest Service says. Contact with flames causes the shelters to fill with highly flammable toxic smoke, which can ignite into a fireball, researchers found. The Forest Service and other federal agencies sent warnings to fire crews last week after tests in Canada caught the fireballs on videotape.

"The Substitute," a tense and topical action-thriller, stars Tom Berenger in the title role as a mercenary who takes on his girlfriend's teaching job at a rough Miami high school when she's brutally mugged while jogging. This Orion release has the usual quota of violence for urban exploitation pictures, but its people have been drawn with exceptional dimension.

One might say Leif Christensen has a green thumb. Lush honeysuckle vines, fruit trees and flowering plants nearly cover his E. South Street home, known to his friends as "Leif's little jungle." "It's a lot of work, but I just love flowers and plants," said Christensen, 68, pointing out that all the greenery is important because it creates fresh air. But some neighbors, with their manicured lawns and neatly trimmed bushes, say Christensen's wild yard sticks out like a sore thumb.

Standing in his spacious court chambers, Presiding Justice Arthur Gilbert loosened his tie and launched into an intellectual discussion of search and seizure laws. "What do you think?" he asked. It was the type of question typically posed to a law clerk or fellow jurist. But Gilbert was looking for an answer from a different source Thursday--a group of high school seniors who participated in a one-of-a-kind program aimed at educating students on the California appellate system.

Harpo is safe.  The English bulldog puppy is back at home after being dognapped at gunpoint in an Oregon shopping center parking lot. It all started last week when Jim and Pat Steele got a call from someone interested in buying two of their pups.  The couple sell AKC-registered dogs from their Oregon City, Ore., kennels. "The arrangement was to meet the person at the Clackamas Town Center parking lot," Sgt. Adam Phillips, public information officer with the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Wednesday.

The teen sat at the defense table, his shoulders hunched up toward his ears, as the hardened prosecutor strode toward the jury. "On the morning of 9/23/98," the prosecutor began, pointing his finger at the defendant, "he had a choice: whether he wanted to bring marijuana to school or not." He paused dramatically. "He made the wrong decision." It could be a scene from the Ventura County Courthouse or the latest episode of "Law and Order," but it's not.
