A hillside erupts in flame as a wildfire burns in Placerita Canyon in Santa Clarita, Calif., Monday, July 25, 2016. A raging wildfire that forced thousands from their homes on the edge of Los Angeles continued to burn out of control Monday as frustrated fire officials said residents reluctant to heed evacuation orders made conditions more dangerous and destructive for their neighbors. (AP Photo/Nick Ut)SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Most of the roughly 20,000 evacuees forced out by a wildfire were cleared to go home, but firefighters still have huge work ahead Tuesday in taming a massive wildfire northwest of Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Seth Perlman, File)PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Caterpillar's second-quarter performance beat Wall Street's expectations, despite weakness in the mining and oil and gas industries. But the company lowered its full-year adjusted profit guidance again, saying global economic growth remains subdued and isn't sufficient to drive improvement in most of the industries and markets it serves.

Members of a mining community sit outside their shacks in Nkaneng township, Marikana's informal settlement, in RustenburgBy Ed Stoddard MARIKANA, South Africa (Reuters) - In the shantytowns around Lonmin's Marikana platinum mine, where 34 striking miners were shot dead by police in 2012, residents say the ruling party has failed to keep a promise for basic services and could lose in next week's local polls. The vote will be a stern test for President Jacob Zuma's African National Congress who is facing a strong challenge from the opposition and an economy forecast to stagnate this year. Any defeats in the big population centres for the ANC in the Aug. 3 vote, could damage the party, in power since the end of white-minority rule in 1994, as it prepares for a presidential election in 2019.
