SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The son of an inmate who died at the Utah state prison has sued corrections officials and health care providers, accusing them of violating his father's civil rights by failing to give him dialysis for two days.
By Steve Quinn and David Schwartz JUNEAU, Alaska/PHOENIX (Reuters) - Firefighters were working on Friday to contain several massive wildfires raging from Alaska to drought-hit California that have forced hundreds of people to evacuate from their homes and damaged dozens of structures. The so-called Lake Fire in a mountainous national forest outside Los Angeles had swelled to 11,000 acres (4,500 hectares) on Friday from 7,500 acres (3,000 hectares) the day before as it scorched old-growth timber on steep slopes and threatened some 150 structures, the San Bernardino County Fire Department said. In Alaska, about 900 firefighters were battling two major blazes in a state that has 56 active wildfires ranging from a few acres to 10,000 acres (4,000 hectares), officials said.
Southwest, which holds 18 of 20 gates at the airport, agreed that Delta could use certain gates until July 6. Southwest plans to ramp up flights in August from Love Field, its headquarters, contingent upon regaining all takeoff and arrival slots from Delta. On Friday, Delta threatened legal action against Dallas if the city did not accommodate its flights, saying inaction amounted to a failure of federal obligations and an assault on consumer choice that would result in "disrupting thousands of passengers," according to a Delta spokesman.
