Thursday Memo: Brass knuckles … Teen pulled from burning house … Burglar stabs dog

National Weather Service / Forecast

Brass knuckles vs. a spider: Guess who won? A Spokane man found a huge spider in his house, and finding some brass knuckles handy – smashed the critter dead. Oh, and he also put a hole in the wall… You can see the results on his YouTube video.

All we can say is, “Whoa!”Cameras get 6,000 school speeders in Seattle.

Since the Powerball winners are from Arizona and Missouri, none of us won, did we? At least not the BIG prize.

A 17-year-old teen was pulled from a burning house in Lacey early this morning and is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Two others in the house escaped and were treated for smoke inhalation. KING5 has the story.

Burglar stabbed dog:  Why isn’t clear, but a Spokane man surprised an intruder last night, catching him stabbing the dog. A fight ensued during which the intruder was stabbed himself. The battle moved outside, and a neighbor was able to grab the burglar and hold him until the cops arrived. The dog suffered a wound to his neck but is expected to survive.
