   Questions are being raised over the way a Sunday morning fire was handled at the Bridgeton Landfill.  The smokey surface fire broke out in the southwest corner of the dump after a mechanical failure allowed gas to build up.  
   Technicians who monitor the facility are supposed to call first responders when there's an emergency.  Pattonville Assistant Fire Chief Matt Lavanchy tells Fox 2 News it was concerned residents who called 911 Sunday morning, not landfill monitors. "I don't know what happened or what their thought process is," Lavanchy said.  "I can only tell you we were not notified the way we should have been."
   Landfill technicians were able to put the fire out fairly quickly and no evacuations were ordered.
   Residents concerned about their safety also called their state representative, Bill Otto Sunday morning.  He tells Fox 2 News that the way the landfill is being handled isn't fair to the people who live nearby.  "They deserve the right to live in their home comfortably and safely, and know that every morning, they don't have to look out the window to see if something's going on," Otto said.
   The landfill owners released a statement Sunday that said in part they plan to "conduct an after-action review of the entire incident to include notification of and coordination with first responders."
 

Powerball jackpot to near record heights, again

Monday, 17 February 2014 01:42 Published in Local News

   Another big Powerball jackpot is up for grabs this week.  

   Lottery officials said no one matched all six numbers for Saturday's $330.8 million drawing. So the prize for Wednesday's drawing is expected to be the fourth-biggest Powerball jackpot and sixth-highest lottery prize of all time.  The estimated jackpot: at least $400 million.  That's just over $227 million for a single winner who opts for a lump sum.  

   Powerball jackpots have set several new records since January 2012, when ticket prices rose to $2 and starting prizes were raised to $40 million.  

   This pot has been growing since December.

NY fashion designer found dead in Hudson river

Monday, 17 February 2014 01:37 Published in National News
   NEW YORK (AP) — Police have identified the body of a man found floating on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River as that of a fashion designer who was reported missing last week.
   Police say 55 year old Michele Savoia's body was discovered off Chelsea Piers Sunday afternoon not far from where he lived aboard his boat. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
   It wasn't clear how Savoia ended up in the river, but police do not suspect foul play. He was last seen alive leaving a nearby nightclub early Thursday morning.
   Savoia reportedly designed hand-crafted suits for celebrities and had a boutique on the Lower East Side.
