More than 2 Million Cribs Recalled

WASHINGTON  -- More than 2 million cribs from Evenflo, Delta Enterprise Corp. and five other companies were recalled Thursday amid concerns that babies can suffocate, become trapped or fall from the cribs.

Most of the cribs were drop-sides, which have a side rail that moves up and down so parents can lift children from them more easily. That movable side, however, can malfunction or detach from the crib, creating a dangerous gap where babies' heads can become trapped, leading to suffocation or strangulation.

The other companies involved in the recall were Child Craft, Jardine Enterprises, LaJobi, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons Juvenile Products.

UPDATED: Las Vegas Police Locate Missing Woman

UPDATED - (Metro police say Susie Rae Paperno has been found at a local hospital.)

Metro Police are searching for a local woman who vanished without a trace. Fifty-seven-year-old Susie Rae Paperno was last seen at her home late last month near the Summerlin area.

Friends and neighbors now fear for the woman's safety. "I don't think bad thoughts, but it's not looking good. It's not looking good," said friend Jeff Behar. "I am really afraid for her at this point," said friend Gayla Miyama.

Paperno's home near Washington and Tenaya is sealed with police tape. Many of her personal belongings remain inside. "(She left) her vehicle and other things that would lead us to believe that she wouldn't have just left her property," said Metro Police Lt. Rob Lundquist.

Thick Brush Offers Scary Possibilities for Wildfire Season

LAS VEGAS -- A rainy spring has left the Las Vegas valley vulnerable to raging wildfires. There is literally a carpet of brush and weeds in spots never seen before, and it's just part of the reason firefighters are watching the mountains with fear.

The red brome weed has all turned brown and dry. The problem is the weed has invaded acres of land in southern Nevada. Firefighters are concerned it will provide a consistent fuel for fires to spread.

This year, wildland firefighters predict a busy fire season. Bureau of Land Management firefighter Chris Delaney walks through the Red Rock desert paying extra close attention to the red brome.

"In a typical year in southern Nevada, you wouldn't see quite as heavy as a grass crop as we have now. Not only quite as much but as continuous," he said.

2 Dead in House Fire

LAS VEGAS -- A spokesperson with the Las Vegas Fire Department says two people have been found dead in a house fire near Michael Way and Lake Mead.

The fire started around 4:20 p.m. on the 5300 block of Dulce Ave.

A neighbor with a smoke mask went inside to try and save anyone. The neighbor spotted an elderly woman slumped over in the bedroom and an elderly man slumped over on the couch.

The neighbor left the home and fire crews eventually arrived. Neighbors say the couple lived there for more than a decade.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
