Downtown Detroit is seen from a vacant lot, looking south along Woodward AvenueBy Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - The Michigan House of Representatives approved on Thursday a $500 million spending package for Detroit schools, which could run out of money to pay employees at the end of June. The legislation, which still needs approvals from the state Senate and Governor Rick Snyder, was passed early Thursday morning after hundreds of Detroit teachers called in sick over paycheck concerns, a move that closed nearly all of the district's 97 schools on Monday and Tuesday. Detroit school teachers returned to their classrooms on Wednesday following the "sick-out" after receiving assurances from officials that they will be paid for their work.

With a few neighborhoods already in ruins, worsening fire conditions Wednesday pushed walls of flames toward thousands of more homes in the northeastern Alberta town, in the heart of Canada's oil sands region. Officials confirmed that a hotel north of main terminal had caught fire.
