When the weather cools, stink bugs start trying to get inside. But you'll be sorry if you smash a stink bug you find in your home. The insects let off a horrible stench when crushed. But there are some simple ways to get them out of your house without letting them emit the putrid smell.

Several buildings caught fire in Fuller Park on the South Side early this morning.
Fortunately, no injuries were reported. But during the search for people, firefighters found four puppies trapped inside a burning building. The paramedics cared for the puppies and provided oxygen.
