Fires ravaging California — Roughly 8,300 acres of land has succumbed to a rampant wildfire in northern California. Reuters photographers have gotten close to the blaze, providing a collection of stunning photography that you can view here.

Gliding through the sewage to Olympic glory — Talk about sailing through a controversy! (Sorry.) Olympic sailors say they're not worried about the quality of the water at next year's Rio games, even though some reports say the water where their events will occur has the pollution equivalent of raw sewage. Problem solved! Even better?

Colonial skeletons — Your move, Colonial Williamsburg. Scientists have discovered the remains of four leaders of the first successful English settlement in the New World, over four centuries after they perished. The skeletons, uncovered roughly 80 miles south of Washington, D.C. in the Jamestown settlement, belonged to a group of men who helped guide the nascent colony during its leanest years in the early 1600s.

A look back inside the White House — It's a rare look inside the White House on one of the most pivotal days in American history: a newly uncovered collection of photos from the West Wing on 9/11. Click here to view the slideshow. And read on for more news you might have missed.

Up in smoke? — French tobacco dealers aren't blowing off a strict new regulation. France's lawmakers have ruled that cigarette makers must package their wares in plain boxes, in an effort to discourage smoking. The tobacconists, in response, are staging protests and in some cases even disabling traffic speed cameras to get their point across.

Spitting into the wind — While many countries push for renewable energy, Australia may remain a rare exception to the green trend. At least that'll be the case if Prime Minister Tony Abbott has his way. The conservative lawmaker has denied state support to a roughly $2 billion wind farm and solar power plant, because he apparently finds wind farms "ugly," preferring instead the an always aesthetically delightful alternative: coal.

What nightmares are made of — At least it couldn't fly. A newly discovered, almost completely intact fossil shows that a "fluffy feathered poodle from hell," existed in China during the Early Cretaceous Period. Scientists say the flightless creature was a meat eater who grew to about six feet tall. Sadly, he did not make it into the new "Jurrasic World" movie.

Men. On the catwalk — Fashion Week is here - again! New York City is celebrating its first-ever Men's Fashion Week, designed as a counterpart to the long-running and famed women's Fashion Week. Check out Reuters coverage here - and view our slideshow as well, to make sure your outfit is on point.

Vive la France! — It's Bastille Day! Celebrations broke out across France for Bastille Day, the country's National Day commemorating the start of the French Revolution. Click here for a Reuters slideshow of some of the best images of celebrations. And read on for more news you might have missed.

The good kind of rat infestation — The world's latest search-and-rescue crew? Rats. That's imported Gambian pouched rats, to be precise. The nasally exceptional animals are trained to detect landmines and unexploded shells. Now, a crew of 15 rats -- and about a dozen human handlers -- have been dispatched to Cambodia, where experts say the animals are detecting mines in just minutes (human investigators can often take several days to accomplish the same).
