Fire broke out in the Perth Amboy YMCA yesterday morning, forcing dozens of residents to flee. The fire, one of several in the building over the years and at least the second this year, began about 6 a.m., fire officials said. The four-story brick building has been used as a Y since it was completed in 1913. Single men lived in about 60 rooms on the top three floors. Portions of several streets around the Jefferson Street structure were closed off throughout the day as crews worked to extinguish the blaze and then looked for bodies of people who may have been trapped inside.

CSX Corp. says the Jan. 20 derailment of a crude-oil train on a Schuylkill bridge was caused by a rail that shifted because it had been improperly secured by workers who had earlier done maintenance on the line. The crew, which was replacing timber cross ties on the tracks, had not followed CSX protocols when they temporarily secured the rail to the ties, said Melanie Cost, a company spokeswoman. Seven rail cars, including six tankers containing crude oil, left the tracks. There were no leaks and no structural damage to the Schuylkill Arsenal bridge, CSX said.

SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Wilson has no regrets about how many times he pitched during the San Francisco Giants' improbable 2010 World Series title run. Nor about how he stayed on the mound at Colorado last week despite ligament damage in his arm. "Absolutely not," Wilson said. "That's how I play baseball. Push it to the limits. " Wilson has now reached his limit. San Francisco's bearded and boisterous closer said before Sunday's series finale against Pittsburgh that he probably will have elbow-reconstruction surgery, ending his season after only 56 pitches, two appearances and one save.

Officials of the San Francisco 49ers will meet today with structural engineers to determine if their NFL game on Sunday against the New England Patriots can be played at Candlestick Park. The stadium sustained some damage in Tuesday's earthquake, which rocked Northern California, killing hundreds and forcing postponement of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and Oakland Athletics until at least next Tuesday at Candlestick. The 49ers' vice president, John McVay, said Candlestick is the first choice for the game on Sunday, but Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto is the second choice.

A fire apparently set in a pile of wrestling mats last night in Lower Merion High School sent heavy smoke billowing into the school but did no structural damage to the building. "There's no evidence of an accidental fire," said Lower Merion Township Fire Chief Harry Knorr. He said that although it was too early to say what caused the fire, it was "probably intentional. " Lower Merion School Superintendent James Pugh said there would be classes today for the school's 1,038 students in grades nine through 12.

A fire ignited by a welder's torch yesterday destroyed $100,000 worth of roofing insulation atop a new building at the former B. Altman deparment store site in Radnor Township, Delaware County. The 50,000-square-foot structure at Lancaster and Iven Avenues was scheduled to open in October as the Micro Center, a computer "superstore" employing up to 100 people. It was not determined if the building sustained structural damage, which could delay its opening. Don Wood, deputy chief of the Radnor Fire Department, said a worker with an arc welder was working on the inside of the roof when the roof heated up and the styrofoam insulation caught on fire.

Bob Clarke strongly defended Steve Downie in an interview with the Sports Network of Canada, saying he "loved it" when the Flyers rookie punched Toronto's Jason Blake in a game Saturday. "When he went after Blake, I loved it," said Clarke, the Flyers' senior vice president, on TSN's Off the Record last night. Downie was suspended for the season's first 20 games after a blind-side hit to the head of Ottawa's Dean McAmmond in a preseason game in September. At the time, Blake was quoted as saying the suspension should have been for the entire season.

Less than three weeks before the start of school, Marple Newtown Acting Superintendent Thomas E. Persing is considering closing Loomis Elementary School if engineers find structural problems with the building. "I have asked the inspectors to go in and test the structural soundness," Persing said. "I want them to tell me if it is safe or not. That is all I want to know. " The inspectors - one from the state Department of Labor and Industry and the other from an independent firm hired by the district - were supposed to survey the school earlier this week.
