Fire officials are investigating the cause of a two-alarm fire that badly damaged a Korean barbecue restaurant several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
Fire officials say a Las Vegas pet store owner is accused of setting her business ablaze, but all 28 puppies inside have been rescued.
A vessel made famous by author John Steinbeck is sitting at a Port Townsend boat yard as the owner makes plans to move it to Salinas, Calif.
A trove of the writer's personal letters, manuscripts and photographs from his sunny three-bedroom apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side will be offered Wednesday at Bloomsbury Auctions in New York.
With wide streets, historic buildings and old oaks, parts of the city haven't changed much since Steinbeck wrote of King City in parts of Mice and Men and To a God Unknown.
Steinbeck says about 40 county and city firefighters were able to contain flames before they spread to adjacent storefront businesses in the strip shopping center.
