    Firefighters from surrounding towns rushed to aid their colleagues in Prospect Park after a noontime house fire spread to a neighboring home. Initial reports of an occupant possibly trapped thankfully proved unfounded after the fire broke out on the second floor of the primary North 11 Street home, off Fairview Avenue, around 11:30 a.m. Council President Anand Shah, who live-streamed from the scene, called for prayers for those who lost their homes and belongings in the destructive blaze. The mayor also praised the first responders who braved not only the fire itself but temperatures in the 90s -- not counting the heat index -- as well as downed power lines. Mutual aid responders at the scene or in coverage included firefighters from Haledon, Hawthorne, Paterson and Pompton Lakes, he said. Paterson's fire chief also joined his borough counterpart at the scene. Together, they kept the blaze from spreading to any more homes. The first was declared under control shortly after 1 p.m.

    Tou Thao testified in his own defense in a federal civil rights trial on Tuesday  Tou Thao, one of three former Minneapolis police officers on trial for violating George Floyd's civil rights, told a jury on Tuesday he did not realize the black man was being asphyxiated while a white officer knelt on his neck for nine minutes. Testifying in his own defense, Thao, 36, said he assumed Floyd's heart was still beating because he never saw the other officers attempt to revive him as they were trained to do. Thao, 36, is on trial in the U.S. District Court in St. Paul alongside J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane.  All three are accused of violating Floyd's right to receive medical care as he lay dying, unable to properly breathe face down beneath the knee of their former colleague, Derek Chauvin. Cellphone video of the arrest on a Minneapolis road on May 25, 2020, led to protests against racism and police brutality in cities around the world. Chauvin was convicted last year at a separate state trial for the murder...
    BANGKOK (AP) — For more than two years, the isolation of the Pacific archipelago nation of Tonga helped keep COVID-19 at bay. But last month’s volcanic eruption and tsunami brought outside deliveries of desperately needed fresh water and medicine — and brought the virus. Tonga is only one of several Pacific island countries to experience their first outbreaks over the past month. There is growing concern that their precarious health care systems might quickly become overburdened, and that the remoteness that once protected them may now make them difficult to help. “Clearly when you’ve got countries that have already got a very stretched, and fragile health system, when you have an emergency or a disaster and then you have the potential introduction of the virus, that’s going to make an already serious situation immeasurably worse,” said John Fleming, the Asia-Pacific head of health for the Red Cross. Tonga was coated with ash following the Jan. 15 eruption of the massive undersea Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai volcano, then hit with a tsunami that followed. Only three people...

    A fast-acting Jersey Shore police officer smashed a window of a car to rescue a child accidentally locked inside by his mother, and then offered to cover the costs of a replacement window. Island Heights Patrolman Mellott saw the frantic mom outside of her vehicle on River Avenue, saying she had just secured her child in to a car seat but accidentally locked her keys inside the vehicle on July 12. Mellott quickly requested first aid as a precaution, as well as dispatching a duty tow truck to preform a lock out kit on the car.  After minutes passed, Mellott noticed the child starting to sweat.  From his training and experience, the officer knew that the child could be in grave danger from the heat.  With the consent of the mother, Mellott broke the window of the vehicle allowing him to open the door and retrieve the child. First aid arrived shortly after to clear the child of any medical issues. "As if rescuing a child wasn’t good enough, Patrolman Mellott went above and beyond the call," his department...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat who is declaring that he will be the new majority leader on Jan. 20, said passing legislation providing $2,000 stimulus checks will be the first legislation that Democrats will pass. “It’s one of the first things we want to do,” Schumer told reporters Wednesday. “Our Georgia senators campaigned on it, and our caucus is strongly for it. We think the American people need it.” Democrats are declaring victory in Georgia’s double Senate runoff, although one of the races remains too close to call. Schumer held a victory press conference in the Capitol Wednesday, telling reporters that he is excited to have control over the Senate's agenda for the first time since 2006. The House is under Democratic control, and the White House will also be run by Democrats, which will provide a rare period of one-party control. Schumer said he spoke with incoming President Joe Biden and pledged to work with the administration to “help achieve a forward-looking agenda and deliver bold change to the American people.” First on the list, he...
    New claims for jobless benefits have dropped below one million in a week for the first time since March. The Department of Labor on Thursday said that 963,000 people applied for unemployment benefits for the week ended August 8, down from a revised 1.19 million the week prior.  The decline suggests that layoffs are slowing, though last week's figure still exceeds the pre-pandemic record of just under 700,000.  The number of continuing claims, including people receiving non-traditional benefits such as gig workers, was 28 million, down slightly from 31 million the week before. Although the declining numbers marked a positive trend for a job market battered by coronavirus shutdowns, the claims figures still remain at historically high levels, as the nation continues to navigate the grim economic fallout of the pandemic.  The Department of Labor on Thursday said that 963,000 people applied for unemployment benefits for the week ended August 8.
