    A BLAZE has broken out at Russia's largest gas field, sending flames shooting into the air sparking concerns the inferno could hit Europe's gas supply.

Gazprom officials said today that the major fire had been extinguished, however, it was unclear from officials what damage had been sustained. They also shied away from explaining what knock-on effect the blaze would have on gas supplies to Europe, which are already high prices and causing economic hardship. It is the latest in a series of blazes at key Russian installations during the war with Ukraine.  MORE ON RUSSIANO TIME TO SPY Fears 'four Russian spies' infiltrated Westminster...
    The growing frequency of political violence raises the specter of a Republican insurgency if former President Trump runs and loses in 2024, warned conservative columnist Max Boot on Tuesday. He said he feared that an armed faction of Trump fanatics would 'bear roughly the same symbiotic relationship to the GOP that the IRA had to the Sinn Fein party.'  His Washington Post column will be dismissed as the work of a Never Trump Republican by some but it reflects growing alarm that the U.S. faces rising incidents of political violence after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Last week, Rep. Paul Gosar was censured and stripped of his committee assignments by the House for posting an edited anime video that showed him attacking Democrats - but he escaped the wrath of his own party and only two Republicans supported the motion. Boot said Republicans had made no attempt to tone down the rhetoric of some members and were 'hostage to the extremists in their ranks.' 'We are at the greatest peril since the early 1970s — when the...
    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (AP/CBS13) – Flames raced across treetops and through drought-stricken vegetation as firefighters scrambled Wednesday to keep a growing California wildfire from reaching a resort city at the southern tip of Lake Tahoe after evacuation orders were expanded to neighboring Nevada. Thick smoke from the Caldor Fire enveloped the city of South Lake Tahoe, which was all but deserted during a summer week usually bustling with tourists.

Vollmer said embers were being cast up to a mile out in front of the fire, creating new ignition points, including in some parts of the dense forest that haven’t burned...
    GREENVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Thousands of firefighters have prepared for a tougher fight against California’s largest wildfire as extremely dangerous weather returns, threatening to stoke flames into explosive growth. Firefighters were able to save homes and hold large stretches of the blaze but a red flag warning was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon through Thursday because of hot, bone-dry conditions with winds up to 40 mph. That could drive flames through timber, brush and grass, especially along the northern and northeastern sides of the vast blaze. “I think we definitely have a few hard days ahead of us,” said Shannon Prather with the U.S. Forest Service. The Dixie Fire jumped perimeter lines in a few spots Tuesday, prompting additional evacuation orders for some 15,000 people, fire officials said. Firefighters prevented flames on Monday from reaching homes in the small Northern California community of Greenville near the Plumas National Forest as the 3-week-old fire grew to over 395 square miles (1,024 square kilometers) across Plumas and Butte counties. On Tuesday, spot fires jumped some of the perimeters and burned several acres...
    More On: new york rangers Discussing the lingering Tony DeAngelo questions Rangers hope to build on momentum as huge test approaches Kaapo Kakko’s Rangers progress has yet to match the grand hype Henrik Lundqvist in good spirits month after open heart surgery The Flames are conducting due diligence on Tony DeAngelo and have expressed at least preliminary interest in the Rangers’ excommunicated defenseman, The Post has confirmed. It is believed that Sam Bennett, the fourth-overall selection of the 2014 draft, who has at least temporarily fallen out of favor, has been a topic of conversation between the teams. Bennett, who can play center or wing, has been designated as a healthy scratch for the Flames’ match at Winnipeg on Thursday after having recorded just one point (an assist) in the first nine games. He has primarily played on the wing, averaging 13:20 on a line with Mikael Backlund and either Josh Leivo or Andrew Mangiapane. According to sources, the Flames have not yet made the definitive decision to move on from him. Calgary is among several teams that have...
    Unable to comment specifically about the Nets’ new Big 3 because their trade for James Harden is not official, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said three superstar scorers on the court together will always have “to sacrifice.’’ But one Eastern Conference NBA scout told The Post that’s easier said than done with the Nets’ freshly bearded beastly trio of Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving having formed Wednesday, turning the NBA on its ear. The scout is most concerned with chemistry between Harden and Irving. “It’ll be a work in progress,’’ the NBA scout said. “You have literally and statistically two of the five most ball-dominant guys in the league. I watched Houston with John Wall and Harden, and maybe it’s because of the issues, but that didn’t look like a comfortable environment for Harden with Wall dominating the ball. Then you have Durant who I wouldn’t say is ball dominant but certainly needs a lot of touches.’’ At least Harden and Durant played together in Oklahoma City. But that was before Harden became the league’s top scorer, averaging at least...

    Q: We had a really close call in Sky Londa the other night with cars racing on Skyline Boulevard and Highway 84 west of Skyline. The lawlessness got markedly worse after the COVID-19 lockdown freed the road of tourists to slow those behind them. So the sheriff upped its presence and things calmed down for a while. Then they predictably got worse again, escalating to a potentially catastrophic scenario that we’ve all feared with our landscape dry and ripe for fire. What if someone crashes and starts a fire?

    Firefighters and officials at California's largest utility company braced for hot, dry and windy weather in northern and central areas of the state this weekend that may fan the flames of several major wildfires or ignite new ones. Pacific Gas & Electric warned Friday it may cut power from Sunday morning to Monday, potentially affecting 97,000 customers in 16 counties, during which forecasters said a ridge of high pressure will raise temperatures and generate gusts flowing from the interior to the coast. PG&E initially warned that approximately 21,000 customers in three counties would lose power beginning Saturday evening but expanded the potential shutoff when the forecast changed. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox The utility is tracking the weather to determine if it would be necessary to shut off power to areas where gusts could damage the company's equipment or hurl debris into lines that can ignite flammable vegetation.  PG&E continues to monitor a potentially strong and dry offshore wind event forecasted to start early Sunday morning and expected to last through Monday.
