A strong earthquake rocked this rural northeastern Nevada town early Thursday, damaging hundreds of homes, rupturing gas and water lines, and felling brick building facades in the mostly unoccupied historical district.

A pall of smoke from a dozen wildfires raging over more than 80,000 acres hung over Yellowstone National Park in northwest Wyoming Tuesday, but winds drove the flames past the famed Old Faithful geyser area. More than 1,700 firefighters battled the blazes, including 1,000 crew members massed near the 5,700-acre North Fork fire in case it made a run to the east toward the most famous of the park's 3,000 geysers and hot springs.

Groping in the dark at a car-rental return, Reb Sawitz slips and breaks his left leg in seven places. He arrives home in North Hollywood with a thigh-to-toe plaster cast and doctor's orders to stay in bed, which means he won't be able to run his softball team the following weekend in the California state tournament.
