A jury delivered an extraordinary blow to the government Thursday in a long-running battle over the use of public lands when it acquitted all seven defendants involved in the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in rural southeastern Oregon.
Fire broke out at the Dollar Tree store in a strip mall in Harrisonville, Mo., Thursday night. Three people were evacuated from the store by police who responded to the 911 call, according to Chris Osterberg of the Harrisonville police department. There were no injuries reported and once the smoldering fire is put out the investigation will begin, Osterberg added.
