    A diocese of the Church of England is giving an unprecedented £250,000 towards a multi-faith building in which the largest amount of worship space will be reserved for Muslims.

    INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. There's outrage in northern Minnesota after firefighters allowed a man's mobile home to burn. Carl Berg had failed to pay the 25-dollar annual fee required for fire protection for homes outside International Falls city limits. Berg says he couldn't afford the fee or fire insurance. He says he lost everything in last month's fire. The Fire Department poured enough water to put the fire out temporarily and make sure everyone was safe.
