NEW YORK -- A three-alarm fire swept through a wooden home in the Bronx, killing eight children and one adult and injuring at least 17. It was the city's deadliest residential blaze in decades, said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Firefighters responded quickly to the fire, which started about 11 p.m. Wednesday, blocks from Yankee Stadium. By then, the bodies of several children and one adult were lying on the ground, officials said. Minutes earlier, neighbors had tried to catch two children who had been dropped from upper windows of the three-story structure by their mother, who then jumped.

Have you ever been so distracted by stand-in scenery that you couldn't enjoy the film? WHAT YOU SAY For me, nothing tops the setting chosen for the Pennsylvania hunting scenes in The Deer Hunter, the searing epic of the Vietnam War. The mountains chosen for the outdoor scenes were appropriate for the Canadian Rockies, but Pennsylvania?
