    AUBURN, Calif. (WCMH) – Members of a California community are upset after their homeowners’ association told them they need to keep their garage doors open during the day. A list left with homeowners in the Auburn Greens subdivision is giving many residents a cause for concern.

Farook and a woman were killed in a gunfight with police in nearby Redlands after the rampage at the center that killed 14 people and wounded 17 others. San Bernardino County records showed that someone with that name was an employee at the county's Environmental Health Department. The...

    D.C. fire and emergency officials were working to shore up a portion of a parking garage that collapsed this morning at the Watergate complex on Virginia Avenue NW. D. C. fire spokesman Tim Wilson said it will take several hours to shore up the structure, a step necessary for emergency responders to be able to search the garage for anyone who may be trapped, WTOP reports. Three stories of the garage, which was under renovation, collapsed atop each other in a "pancake" effect.

    A 74-year-old Belmont man is recovering after he was bitten by a rattlesnake in his garage. Edmund Pieret said he was bit Thursday when reaching for one of his tools.

"I was not expecting it at all," he said. "I've never...

  • Another Tesla Caught On Fire While Sitting In A Toronto Garage This Month

    Earlier this month, a Tesla Model S sitting in a Toronto garage ignited and caught on fire. The car was about four months old and was not plugged in to an electric socket, says a source. Fires are a touchy issue for the company, which reports Q4 2013 earnings on February 19th. Last year, three vehicles caught fire over the course of six weeks. The company has previously pointed out in a government filing that the lithium ion battery cells "have been observed to catch fire or vent smoke and flame." So the fires have raised concerns with consumers and...
  • San Francisco Liberals Outlaw Storing Items in Your Own Garage

    How far will the government go to infringe on your rights? In San Francisco, residents aren’t even allowed to store their own belongings in their home. Residents of the liberal city are banned from using their garage to store any personal property other than a vehicle. Chapter Six of the San Francisco Housing Code states, “Private and public storage garages in apartment houses and hotels shall be used only for storage of automobiles.” Those who violate the law can be slapped with a $500 fine.

    SAN DIEGO — At Mitt Romney’s proposed California beach house, the cars will have their own separate elevator. There’s also a planned outdoor shower and a 3,600-square foot basement — a room with more floor space than the existing home’s entire living quarters. Those are just some of the amenities planned for the massive renovation of the Romneys’ home in the tony La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, according to plans on file with the city. A project this ambitious comes with another feature you don’t always find with the typical fixer-upper: its own lobbyist, hired by Romney to push...

After you get satisfied with your layout of items, then design walls around those items, and design you home, yard, or whatever you are planning to build, in that order, and be able to make changes...

    HACKENSACK, N.J. – A glass canopy fell off of a high-rise condominium building and onto a parking garage two stories below on Friday, partly flattening the structure and trapping at least one person, authorities said.

They could not determine the victim's condition. Authorities are checking out reports that two to three more people might also be trapped, Lindner said. The garage pancaked when the canopy fell on it, damaging...

As part of a campaign called Resale Roundup, the federal government is cracking down on the secondhand sales of dangerous and defective products. The initiative, which targets toys and other products for children, enforces a new provision that makes it a crime to resell anything that's been recalled by its manufacturer.
