ALTOONA: Police say dogs trying to get at a box of cupcakes left on top of a stove apparently started a small fire in a Pennsylvania home. The landlord tells police in Logan Township that he stopped by his tenants' home to let out the dogs about 8 p.m. Sunday.
That's when the landlord saw a small stovetop fire and called firefighters. Police say it appears the dogs were trying to get into the cupcakes and not only knocked off the stove's control knobs,
they also turned on the stove, causing the fire.
The fire has been ruled accidental. Nobody was hurt. Logan Township is east of Pittsburgh. "The exit of President Assad is part of these differences," Lavrov said.
Russia is trying to bolster its claims to act as a mediator in the Syrian crisis and is set to host a raft of opposition leaders and negotiators on the crisis. Both Jabeir and Lavrov called for a fresh push to unite Syria's fragmented opposition in a bid to reinvigorate efforts to find a political settlement to the crisis. Syria's opposition National Coalition is set to visit the Russian capital this week along with a second opposition group.
