Nurses Demand Better Ebola Preparation — SACRAMENTO- Diane McClure is a registered nurse at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center.

Mudslides a Major Concern for King Fire Burn Area — POLLACK PINES- Vern Matthews spent years building his dream home with his wife in the mountains east of Pollack Pines.

Mom Says Daycare Left Daughter Alone during Emergency — SACRAMENTO- Rochelle Ketchum is furious with staff at Kinder World preschool.

Weather Helps Firefighters Gain Upper Hand with Applegate Fire — APPLEGATE- Firefighters say the Applegate Fire did not grow a single acre Thursday, thanks to favorable weather conditions.
