Ryan Carter The Burbank Fire Department hazardous materials team doesn't just clean up messes in the city -- this week, members were sent to assist in a street chemical incident near Santa Clarita. The call Tuesday ended up being canceled, but if Los Angeles County firefighters such as the ones in the Santa Clarita area need Hazmat aid again, Burbank would assist because of a recent agreement. Burbank and Los Angeles County officials agreed on a mutual-aid deal that would send local Hazmat teams to county incidents mostly in the west Valley if county Hazmat crews can't get there soon enough.

A few hundred faithful pass through the doors of Pastor Bob Childress' sanctuary every Sunday, but he worries that sometime in the next decade a 220-mph bullet train may take their place. The future route of the train, as currently drawn, takes dead aim for the Church of the Canyons, an evangelical refuge on Sand Canyon Road in Santa Clarita with a congregation of 450. "This will be an excellent test of our faith," Childress said. California's bullet train has generated plenty of opposition in the areas around the San Gabriel Mountains.

Standing next to him at a keyboard, Police Chief Thomas Hoefel was decked out in black sunglasses, his fingers dancing across the keys and bobbing his head while singing backup vocals. When Hoefel and Orlowski aren't busy nabbing criminals, they're rocking the stage with their band, Mutual Aid.
