Nine people, including two children, made it out safely from a multi-family home fire in New Haven. The fire broke out of a three unit home on Rowe Street Wednesday afternoon, New Haven Fire Chief John Alston said. Seven adults and two children were in the home when the fire started but were able to get out. One man suffered from an burn to his arm and was taken to the hospital, Alston said.

Five people were killed, including the assailant, and 40 others were injured in what Prime Minister Theresa May condemned as a "sick and depraved terrorist attack." Lawmakers, lords, staff and visitors were locked down after the man was shot by police within the perimeter of Parliament, just yards (meters) from entrances to the building itself and in the shadow of the iconic Big Ben clock tower. He died, as did three pedestrians on the bridge, and the police officer.
