It's still hard to believe what a close call it was for a couple of hundred elderly people in St. John's on Tuesday. Fire and smoke raced through a senior's apartment building on Shaw Street. Every tenant was forced out into the street. Many are still being put up in hotels or are staying with family members. This morning, we have the story of one couple who barely got out alive. Bill and Jenny Westcott live across the hall from where the fire started. As you'll hear from Bill's story, he and his wife Jenny know how close they came to death.
New Hope Community Centre
The Salvation Army says it looks like damage to a downtown community centre will be in excess of one million dollars. When workers arrived at the New Hope community Centre on Springdale Street Monday they saw a frozen waterfall on the outside of the building...and a river of water on the inside. The cause...a broken water pipe. Major Ken Ritson is with the Salvation Army.

New Prison Location
The provincial minister of Justice says the government will be issuing a tender call this week for the design of a new prison, to replace Her Majesty's Penitentiary. The cost, and the design, will be contentious enough, but WHERE the prison gets built, that may be where the real battle lies. At this past Monday's council meeting, the mayor of St. John's was pretty clear where he stands. Hayward Blake says he has to disagree. Mr. Blake is a town councillor in Harbour Grace. We'll hear from him in a moment. First, here's some of what Dennis O'Keefe had to say:
Tuesday night's shooting incident at Memorial University rattled many in the area. An RNC officer fired a single shot as a man police were trying to catch for breaking into cars sped off in a stolen S-U-V. Dave Sorensen is the Manager of Communications at MUN. Here he is speaking with the Morning Show's Julie Skinner.
