FOR TODAY'S TOP STORIES

LET'S GO OVER TO THE NEWS DESK.

GORDON THE STATE OF ARIZONA

IS MOURNING THE LOSS OF 19

FIREFIGHTERS. HEALTHER MILLS

HAS THE STORY.

THE FIREFIGHTERS WERE

BATTLING 6,000-ACRES OF BRUSH

NEAR PHOENIX AND THE FLAMES

EXPLODED OUT OF CONTROL.

WE ARE DEVASTATED. WE LOST

19 OF THE FINEST PEOPLE YOU

WILL

EVER MEET. WE'RE IN CRISIS.

19 OF THE CREW OF THE HOT

SHOTS DIED WITH A LONE SURVIVOR

IN A SEPARATE LOCATION. THE

CREWS ARE TRAINED TO HIKE INTO

THE WILDERNESS AND BUILD LINES

BETWEEN PEOPLE AND FIRES. IN

THIS CASE OFFICIALS SAID THE

FAST MOVING BLAZE ENCYCLED THE

TEAM AND THEY HAD TO DO THE

SHELTERS LIKE THIS ONE.

WHEN YOU HAVE THESE

CONDITIONS IT'S UNPREDICTABLE.

THE FIRE WAS RADICAL IN ITS

BEHAVIOR. THAT'S WHAT CAUSED

THE DEATHS IN THE BEHAVIOR, THE

BURNING FUELS. THEY WERE JUST

CAUGHT UP IN A VERY BAD

SITUATION.

IN A STATEMENT THE GOVERNOR

NOTED IT MAY BE DAYS OR LONGER

BEFORE THE INVESTIGATION SHOWS

HOW THIS TRAGEDY OCCURRED BUT

IN

THE ESSENCE WE KNOW IN OUR

HEARTS FIGHTING FIRES IS

DANGEROUS WORK. THE ARIZONA

TRAGEDY IS THE LARGEST LOSS

MUCH

FIREFIGHTERS IN 80 YEARS. IT'S

STILL BLAZING OUT OF CONTROL IN

NORTHWEST PHOENIX AND CONSUMES

HALF OF THE STRUCTURES IN TOWN

AND MOST PEOPLE HAVE E VAC

WAITED.

OUR PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE

FIREFIGHTERS FAMILIES. AN

OLDER

MAN WAS FOUND DEAD IN A HOME

WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING AND

140

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED

FROM FALLING VICTIM TO THE

HEAT.

TEMPERATURES ARE HIGH FROM

BOISE

IDAHO TO TEXAS WHERE IT REACHED

107-DEGREES AND DEATH VALLEY

8128-DEGREES AND LAS VEGAS WAS

117-DEGREES AND A DOZEN RUNNERS

PASSED OUT IN A MARATHON IN

PASADENA AND THE TEMPERATURES

ARE EXPECTED TO LAST THROUGH

THE

JULY 4 HOLIDAY. LAWMAKERS ARE

BACK TALKING ABOUT ABORTION.

THE LATEST SESSION COMES LESS

THAN A WEEK AFTER A FILIBUSTER

AND PROTESTERS DREW THE FIRST

SESSION INTO CHAOS. THE

REPUBLICAN MAJORITY PROMISED TO

PASS THE ABORTION BILL THIS

TIME

AROUND EVEN AS MORE PROTESTS

ARE

HELD AND WENDY DAVIS HELD THE

FILIBUSTER.

MANY AMERICANS ARE ARE TOLERANT

OF SAME SEX MARRIAGE WILL CUT

BACK AND BUSINESS OWNERS WILL

FACE PROSECUTION IF THEY DON'T

ENGAGE IN GAY

WEDDINGS AND SCHOOLS WILL BE

TALKING ABOUT IT TOO. ONE YEAR

AN HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT

THOUSANDS TOOK TO THE STREET TO

DEMAND HE LEAVE OFFICE. HERE

IS

CHRIS MITCHELL.

EGYPTIANS FLOOD THE MAJOR

CITIES WITH DEMANDS HE STEP

DOWN.

I AM DEMANDING HE STEP DOWN

FROM OFFICE AND LEAD. I AM

DEMANDING THAT THE WHOLE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY. WE DON'T WANT THEM

HERE.

MANY BELIEVE HE PUT THE

AGENDA OF THE BROTHERHOOD AHEAD

OF THE COUNTRY.

HE WANTS THEM TO RULE EGYPT.

WE DON'T NEED HIM OR WANT HIM.

HE SHOULD LEAVE.

THEY BROUGHT TOGETHER

MODERATE GROUPS. SMALLER

GROUPS

OF OTHER DEMONSTRATORS TOOK TO

THE STREETS.

THE PEOPLE HOLD THE

LEGITIMACY AND WE SUPPORT HIM

AND WE WANT TO TELL HIM NOT TO

BE AFFECTED BY THE PROTESTS AND

TO NOT GIVE UP HIS RIGHTS. WE

ARE HERE TO SUPPORT AND PROTECT

HIM.

HE SAYS HE WILL NOT STEP

DOWN. HE WANTS TO TALK TO THE

OPPONENTS.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED FOR

DIALOGUE AND PREVIOUSLY SAID

HE'S REACHING OUT TO EVERYONE

AND READY TO LISTEN TO THE

DIALOGUE.

MANY SAY HE HAS PUSHED

THROUGH UNCONSTITUTIONAL

AMENDMENTS AND FAILED TO

ADDRESS

THE FAILING ECONOMY. A

PROTESTER SAID THAT CHRISTIANS

HAVE SUFFERED AND HE WARNS OF A

POTENTIAL CIVIL WAR.

IT'S A MATTER OF TIME EGYPT

WILL GO TO CIVIL WAR BECAUSE

THE

MUSLIM BROTHER HOOD AND OTHERS

ONLY BELIEVE IN POWER AND

VIOLENCE SO THEY DON'T KEEP

SILENCE -- THEY DON'T BELIEVE

IN

PEACEFUL DEMONSTRATIONS.

THE ARMY IS WATCHING THE

GROWING DIVIDE AND HAVE IMPLIED

THEY MIGHT INTERVENE. IN THE

MEANTIME EGYPT'S FUTURE SEEMS

TO

HANG IN THE BALANCE.

A CHRISTIAN GIRL

ACCUSED OF BLAST ME FOR BURNING

A HOLY BOOK HAD TO MOVE BECAUSE

OF SECURITY CONCERNS AND ON THE

HARSH LAWS. THE LAWYER DZ SAID

SHE

LEFT PAKISTAN AND WAS ARRESTED

AFTER A MUSLIM CLERIC ACCUSED

HER OF BURNING THE KORAN AND

WAS

ACCUSED OF FAKING EVIDENCE AND

SHE WAS LET GO. THEY HAVE

DISTRIBUTED THOUSANDS OF

WHEELCHAIRS AND THE AIM IS

PROVIDE MOBILITY TO THE

PHYSICAL

DISABLE'D AND IMPROVE THEIR

LIFE. THEY TREAT AN AVERAGE OF

14,000 PEOPLE EACH MONTH AND
