Firefighters Drop 'Record Amounts' Of Retardant On Vast California Wildfire
Firefighters are dropping record-breaking amounts of retardants on a massive Northern California wildfire that is burning explosively because of the prolonged drought. Fire spokeswoman Lynne Tolmachoff said Friday, California firefighters and the U.S. Forest Service together had bombarded the conflagration with more than a half-million gallons of retardant. That included more than 203,000 gallons in a single day. Tolmachoff said, "They can slow it down a little bit. But they're not able to hold it long enough to get ground units in there to extinguish it before it burns through and continues its path."

Last year, Washington State quarterback Connor Halliday threw the ball an NCAA-record 89 times as Oregon beat the Cougars 62-38 in Eugene, Oregon. Oregon has won seven straight games against Washington State, which opened the season with losses to Rutgers and Nevada, games the Cougars were expected to win.
