Family of Manteca man killed in Gaza strike

Family of Manteca man killed in Gaza strike


Even as the violence escalates following the breakdown of Friday's ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, some Palestinian-Americans are slowly learning about family members affected by earlier incidents.

Like many Palestinian-Americans, Manteca's Mohammad Elfarra has been watching the news from Gaza closely, but the worst report came in the form of a phone call from a friend in the West Bank.

"He said, 'hey give me a call back. We just saw something on the news that reported a family of eight from the Elfarra family in the Gaza Strip in Khan Younis, which is our home town, that they were killed in one air strike,'" Elfarra recalled.

Soon other family members began confirming the reports.

"There's no words for it until you experience it," Elfarra said. "You have nothing that can describe that pain and that hurt."

Crews battle fire at Modesto power station


SACRAMENTO – An early morning fire at a Modesto power station was expected to keep firefighters busy through Thursday afternoon.

Modesto Regional Fire Battalion Chief Hugo Patino said an explosion in a cabinet at the MID Power Station on Parker Rd. sparked the fire around 5:19 a.m.

Patino said the cabinet contained capacitors, which are kept cool with mineral oil.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, they tried using dry chemicals to extinguish the flames but were unsuccessful. They eventually decided to let the fire burn itself out, Patino said.

Patino estimated the fire would continue burning into the afternoon.

The fire did not pose a threat to the surrounding area and the rest of the plant was able to stay energized.
