BREAKING NEWS: The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration mostly enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it. The action today is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.

Fire destroyed a home in New Castle early Sunday morning. It happened around 12:30 a.m. at a home on the corner of Jefferson and West Lutton streets. It took firefighters at least an hour and a half to bring the fire under control, but hot spots were still popping up around 2:30 a.m. The house was unoccupied, as the previous residents had recently moved out. Fire officials said the previous tenants were forced to move out two weeks ago because of code violations. The house is a total loss and will be torn down. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. It is being considered suspicious.
