Authorities say a clothes dryer is responsible for a fire at 49- 14 West Main Street in Roanoke County early this morning. A resident heard the smoke detector, and got both of his sons out safely before firefighters arrived. The fire was contained to the laundry room, but the rest of the house sustained heavy smoke and water damage. The Red Cross will meet with the family later this morning to help them find a place to stay.

System X, as it's called, is the 7th fastest super computer in the world. The system is made of 11-hundred computers and 22-hundred processors. It can figure 12 trillion calculations a second. Researchers say the system could be the key to getting the University even more funding and prestige.

Tim Craft was facing charges in connection to a May incident where 8-year-old Domino was deemed "dangerous" after biting a man during a thunderstorm. Today the charges were dropped and Craft was able to pick up his four-legged friend from the SPCA, but it has cost him.

To keep Domino, Craft has had to put up signage, have him implanted with a microchip and anytime he takes Domino off the property the dog must wear a muzzle and a leash. Craft also has to carry 100-thousand dollars worth of insurance on his pooch, but that's proving to be a problem.

Ricky Andrew Huffman and Todd Russell Harless were arrested yesterday morning. A-T-F Agents say the two men told essentially the same story when confronted at work.
[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Last Night]

Huffman picked up Harless Tuesday night around 8:30 and drove to an alley behind 420 Fourteenth Street.
According to a federal affidavit, they put a pipe bomb in the trash can and ran. Harless allegedly bought the parts at Home Depot and the black powder at a gun show at the Civic Center.
The criminal complaint says Harless built the pipe bomb at his mother's house in Salem.
