USA Update

Rick Lord A big blaze on a boat in California, a mass exodus at a Massachusetts university, and an unbearable encounter in Florida on this USA Update

EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO


California... a luxury boat catches fire this afternoon while docked in San Diego. The Sea Siesta at the Sunroad Marina went up in smoke. You can see flames ripping through the deck and roof. Two harbor patrol fire crews were eventually able to extinguish the flames. Luckily no one was injured...

Massachusetts... Harvard University evacuates four buildings at the heart of its Cambridge campus today. There were unconfirmed reports that explosives had been planted. A bomb squad responded but did not find anything. It's the latest in a series of recent scares at schools and universities around the country. Fortunately here, no one was hurt...

Florida... imagine looking out your window and seeing not just one, but a family of bears taking a dip in your swimming pool. A North Naples woman recorded it all on her i-phone. At one point, a bear walks right up to the door, within inches of the terrified homeowner, who says the bears stuck around for about an hour before running away. And with that we can barely contain ourselves on this USA Update.
