Natural gas well catches fire overnight, crew evacuated

Last night, a natural gas well off the coast caught fire, prompting the evacuation of the crew on the platform. Although government officials and the company that operates the well are actively trying to stop the leak, they are saying that this leak is not even close to the size of the BP spill that spilled millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

Texting isn't the only danger on a cellphone

Cellphones have fallen squarely in the traffic safety spotlight -- and not in a good way. Distracted driving has been the focus of debate, education and legislation across the country.

It's always a fine line when first responders are headed for an emergency scene. On the one hand, there is an urgent need to arrive quickly.
