Rick Lord Fire in the hole in California, some nice ice in North Dakota, and a cop moving traffic with some moves of his own in Rhode Island on this USA Update

California... an underground fire in Oakland after a power company vault explodes into flames this morning. The neighborhood was evacuated because a gas line may have also ruptured. Crews spent the day trying to stifle the flames, but as of early this evening, they were still calling it a developing situation. No reports of any injuries...

North Dakota... a rare phenomenon is causing some double takes. It's called "air lift" and it's creating some interesting ice formations on the Mouse River. What happens is that air bubbles under the frozen surface burst through cracks, and instantly freeze. As this keeps happening, the formations grow rather quickly, and this is the result. Experts say there are more this year because of unusually high turbulence in the water just below the surface...

Rhode Island... he's back!!!! The dancing cop in Providence is once again entertaining motorists and pedestrians. The 66-year-old has been doing this since 1984. He actually retired from the force a few years back, but his moves were so popular, the city invites him back each year just to direct traffic during the holidays. His final performance comes on Christmas Eve. And with that, we have a green light to end this USA Update.
