(Reuters) - Jared Lee Loughner, who killed six people and shot former Arizona lawmaker Gabrielle Giffords in a 2011 rampage, kept bomb-making components in a safe in his bedroom, the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files released to the newspaper showed that agents and sniffer dogs, who stormed Loughner's home just after his capture, found equipment including batteries, a circuit board, wires, and a numeric keyboard, the LA Times said. The files, amassed as the FBI investigated Loughner and released this week at the LA Times' request under the Freedom of Information Act, also showed his love of guns, erratic behavior and an obsession with Giffords. The FBI did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

By Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - Wildfire managers have turned to the U.S. Department of Defense for immediate access to two military C-130 aircraft retrofitted to carry retardant, boosting their forces to face the largest blaze in Washington state history. The U.S. Forest Service has its own fleet of more than 20 air tankers, but has in the past called on the military to provide aircraft to help suppress wildfires. Blazes that have raged across hundreds of thousands of acres (ha) of forests and grasslands in Washington state and Oregon triggered the call for the two aircraft, Steve Gage, a senior official with the U.S. Forest Service, told reporters in a conference call on Friday. Chronic drought has also parched much of California, New Mexico and Arizona, heightening the risk and intensity of wildfires.
