Rick Lord A strip mall goes up in smoke in California, ham on the highway down in Georgia, and that's not a decoration in that tree in Connecticut on this USA Update

EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO


California... hundreds of firefighters rush to the scene of a massive two-alarm fire at a strip mall in Lawndale. Two roofs collapsed and several businesses have been destroyed. The fire is believed to have ignited inside a discount store, although they have not figured out an official cause. There are no immediate reports of any injuries...

Georgia... a truck overturns on an interstate ramp, spilling fuel, and ham. It happened just off I-85 in Fulton County this morning. The truck was carrying more than 80,000 pounds of ham. The cab was destroyed and the driver was injured, but it's not clear how badly he was hurt. No word yet on what led to the crash...

Connecticut... a man takes to the trees in protest. He caused quite a disturbance when he climbed the community Christmas tree on the New Haven Green, and started shouting in Spanish about the holidays and having family and money issues. Power to the tree lights was cut as a precaution and an officer eventually talked the man down. He was arrested and charged with breach of peace. And with that, may peace be with you on this USA Update.
