Texas... a massive fire destroys a townhouse complex in northeast Dallas. The five alarm blaze kept crews, and neighbors, busy this evening. People who live nearby were watering down their own homes, on edge because embers from the fire were sparking grass fires. It looks like everyone made it out OK, although no official confirmation on injuries...

Indiana... one person is dead following a massive pileup today on I-94 near Michigan City. More than a dozen semis were involved in this mangled mess, which also included countless other smaller vehicles. Traffic was backed up for miles. The cause of the accident is under investigation, but it certainly seems like weather was to blame. The highway is still covered in snow and ice...

Minnesota... winter here means it's time for the annual St. Paul Carnival. Artists from around the country are creating some dynamic ice sculptures. The competition kicked off today with with multi-block carvings, which will be judged next week. The St. Paul Winter Carnival runs through February 2nd. And with that, we have carved out another USA Update.
