UNSAFE PITTSBURG BUILDING

  • The city of Pittsburg is working to bring down an unsafe building that forced the closure of a section of Fifth street between Broadway and Pine.  Building safety officials report the structure has moved since its last inspection in 2017.  That section of 5th street will remain closed until the building is demolished.  The connected 5th Street Bar and Grill however, will remain open.

SYRIA GAS ATTACK

  • The U.N. Security Council is planning an emergency session today over a suspected gas attack in a rebel held town near Damascus, Syria.  Local rescuers claim 40 people were killed.  President Donald Trump is blaming Syrian President Bashar Assad, but Assad's government denies it.
