Fire in prison kills at least 26 By The Associated Press CARACAS, Venezuela — Flames consumed a cell in acrowded downtown prison early Tuesday, killing at least 26 inmates. Three guards were detained for questioning after Director of Prisons Antonio Marval said the blaze had been sparked by tear gas canisters that guards threw into the cell. But a lawyer with the attorney general's office said prisoners told him they had set their own mattresses on fire. Most of the 26 charred and crumpled bodies were stacked in the 12-by-12 cell, whose walls were blackened by the fire. The inmates' hair and clothes had been burned off by the flames, and most lay with their eyes still open. Other than the bodies, the only things in the cell were the charred metal frames of two bunk beds. Many of the inmates had slept in hammocks or on the floor. TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul." — Psalm 25:1 T FLOODING The Associated Press A pair of canoeists paddles past a flooded tractor-trailer in Scarborough, Maine, Tuesday. Nor'easter Up to 18 inches of rain swamps northeast U.S. By The Associated Press PORTLAND, Maine — Floodwaters from a storm that dumped up to 18 inches of rain on the Northeast ruptured a pipeline Tuesday, leaving at least 120,000 people in and around Maine's largest city without drinking water. The powerful weekend nor'easter was blamed for at least seven deaths from New Jersey to New Hampshire. Another person was missing in Maine. "No showers, no coffee and I can't even use the bathroom," said Laurie Davis of Westbrook, just outside Portland. Davis couldn't even leave home to get bottled water — she was stranded because two nearby bridges were washed out. A 48-inch main that carries water about 25 miles from Sebago Lake to the Portland area was broken in at least four places. There was no word on when service would be restored, and the area's 170,000 customers were told to boil any water they did get. The state's largest hospital, Maine Medical Center in Port- land, canceled all elective surgery but was able to maintain emergency services. The floodwaters apparently washed away the soil supporting the pipeline. "The pipe is stabilized by the soil it's resting on. If the soil gets washed away, the pipe will bend or break. It just doesn't have any support," said Dana Perkins, a Portland Water District spokesman. "This obviously is the worst thing we've ever had. We were organized in 1908, and I don't think anybody's seen anything this bad." T SALINE COUNTY COMMISSION Land to stay in rural fire district Agreement would let Solomon help when needed to fight fires By SHARON MONTAGUE The Salina Journal Having a mutual aid agreement with the Solomon city fire department would be preferable to transferring land from'a Saline County rural fire district, Saline County commissioners decided Tuesday. After hearing pleas from -two people to delay making a decision, commissioners denied a petition to detach 46 square miles of land in northeast Saline County from Saline County Rural Fire District No. 5. About 28 square miles are in Saline County and 18 are in Ottawa County. Eldon Janssen, Solomon, a board member for the rural fire district, said the land needed to be detached to better provide for the safety of people and property in the area in question. The land is much closer to Solomon, and Solomon firefighters could respond much more quickly in case of a fire, Janssen said. Bob Aylward, Solomon, echoed Janssen's statements, saying firefighters for District No. 5 would have to go through Solomon to get T RADIO CHANGES to his house. Under a mutual aid agreement between Saline County and the Solomon Fire Department, the Solomon fire department would respond to fires in the rural fire district if called upon to do so. But Saline County hasn't had a mutual aid agreement with Solomon since January. "Without that, we're kind of sitting out there pretty vulnerable," Janssen said. But County Administrator David Criswell said a mutual aid agreement could be worked out if communication problems within Rural Fire District No. 5 were solved. "We're looking at leadership changes and rebuilding bridges with the city of Solomon Fire Department," Criswell said. "This will better serve the long-term needs and goals of citizens within the area." Before denying the petition, commissioners voted to change the makeup of all rural fire district boards of trustees in the county. Saying problems developed in Rural Fire District No. 5 because some board members didn't have a clear understanding of the needs of the fire department, Criswell suggested that commissioners require that a majority of all fire dis- trict boards consist of active firefighters for that fire district. The only other fire district in the county that isn't comprised of a majority of firefighters is Rural Fire District No. 7. Criswell said that as the terms of non-firefighter board members in No. 7 expire,: those members will be replaced" with firefighters. Commissioners didn't wait until terms expired to replace non- firefighter members of the No. 5 board with firefighters. Criswell said communication problems among members of that board necessitated quick action. "It's because of the urgency we felt in this situation," he said. At Tuesday's meeting, commissioners voted to replace board members Carl Eklund, 162 S. • Simpson, Ken Giersch, 4373 E. Crawford, and Jim Martin, Solomon. Those board members', terms expire at the end of the: year, Criswell said. Commissioners voted to appoint to the board Glen Gathers, 124 As-, pen, who is assistant chief of the : rural department, Tim Lepage,; New Cambria, and Kevin Miller, • Salina. Commissioners also voted to mandate annual training for fire district board members on firefighting issues, budgeting and other topics related to their work. Thompson to leave KINA for KSAL By The Salina Journal Bryan Thompson, news director of radio station KINA, said Tuesday that he will replace Dave Fooras news director of rival station KSAL. Poor will continue to be the host of the morning local talk show "Kansas Live" and will be the morning news anchor on KSAL. Thompson 'gave his notice Tuesday to KINA. His first day at his new job probably will be Nov. 6, one day after the general election. "I didn't want to leave them (KINA) in the lurch during the elections," Thompson said. Thompson, who joined KINA in July 1980, said he was attracted to KSAL by the opportunity to work with a news staff. "There's a three-man news staff, plus a full-time farm director and a sports department," he said. "It will be nice to have a real, full complement to work with. We ought to be able to do more and better coverage of local stories than what Salina radio has seen in some time. That's what I look forward to." Thompson said he doesn't know what, if anything, needed to be changed with KSAL's news coverage. "I need to have a few weeks on board and learn more with what I have to work with before I can say anything like that," he said. Bob Protzman, general manager of KSAL, and Larry Riggins, general manager of KINA-KSKG, could not be reached for comment.
