It's not the time to turn away from us. That will hurt the industry and many of the workers will lose jobs."- Atiqul Islam, president of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association as the recent building collapse that killed at least 530 threatens that country's garment industry.
"That's the way this fire has behaved, it has been a very fast-moving, feisty fire." - Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Bill Nash on a southern California wildfire.
