Copper wire again taken from Parrish Lane interchange lights.
Thieves recently stole more than 7,000 feet of copper wire from the Parrish Lane Interchange lighting system on the Legacy Parkway in Centerville, Utah. The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) Region One spokesman said the theft probably occurred just a few days before the new year. The loss for the state totals more than $17,000. He said the same interchange has been hit by thieves multiple times since the Parkway opened in 2008. On Interstate 15 and other state highways, the UDOT is beginning to replace old signs with a new type of sign that is much more reflective.

NHTSA recall notice – Ford Escape brake master cylinder reservoir cap.
Ford announced January 11 the recall of 244,530 model year 2001 and 2002 Escape vehicles manufactured from October 22, 1999 through July 19, 2002 equipped with a brake master cylinder reservoir cap that could leak brake fluid. If brake fluid leaks from the cap, it could come in contact with the antilock brake system (ABS) module wiring harness connector. Corrosion can develop in the electrical connector leading to melting, smoke, or a fire. Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder reservoir cap and the ABS electrical system will be modified.

‘Suspicious’ fire destroys 15 luxury boats at Illinois River marina.
A “suspicious” fire at a Seneca, Illinois, marina along the Illinois River destroyed 15 luxury boats and damaged a half dozen others January 12, officials said. “These boats were covered up since October. There’s no reason for them to start burning,” said the Seneca fire chief. “It’s suspicious.” The fire jumped from boat to boat in the closely packed Spring Brook Marina, on the south bank of the Illinois River. Damage could be upwards of $1 million. In addition to the destroyed boats, which were all outside, a large steel storage shed also caught fire.

2 fire hydrants in a water district just south of Colorado Springs, Colorado failed to work during a fire January 11. One failed an inspection, but was never fixed. Stratmoor Hills Water District records show the hydrants were inspected and tested in October. One worked then, but was frozen during the fire. Officials are still investigating why it was frozen. The other hydrant failed the inspection, but was never fixed. The fire started early January 11, according to Stratmoor Hills Fire Department, everyone was able to evacuate the burning home safely. The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office said neighboring homes were evacuated as crews worked to contain the fire. One home next door suffered heat damage.
