Lemmon fire about 80 percent contained

Thursday’s high winds caused a lot more damage than bringing trees down or shingles off a roof. A fire quickly spread across the North Dakota/South Dakota border, with thousands of acres ablaze.

Greg Tomac, who works on Lutz Ranch with his brother, says he’s never seen a fire quite like this. “There were firenados like 25-30 feet tall and they just followed the fireline,” he said. “It was moving.

Magnum PI season 3 episode 5 was an installment that more or less had anything from start to finish. It was in some ways a bottle episode, with almost the entirety of the hour taking place in the bar. There was a hurricane on the outside, armed gunmen storming in, and all sorts of emotional tension. Take, for example, Thomas Magnum having to come to terms with Ethan’s presence in his life.
