7:06 am
firefighters say the fire will burn for weeks if not months down the road. it's not threatening many homes. there's a subdivision about an hour from where we are having. fire crews are trying to protect those structures. that's one point of concern, but the good news is it's burning in an area that isn't threatening or susceptible to burning homes. >> good to put that out. a big sign about the economy. according to the labor department, only 69,000 jobbed were added. the dow jones industrial average fell 2%, erasing all its gains for the year. the drop-off in growth is dropping. >> reporter: hundreds of people lined up at a jobs fair in los angeles this week. >> i've been actively looking for employment for the last

7:21 am
so i don't think it should be an issue. >> they posed for the series of photographs later to be used in august for national breast-feeding awareness month. now the washington state servicewomen could face disciplinary action. a national guard spokesman said it's not about breast-feeding in uniform but instead a violation of military rules. >> the policy is that the military uniform can't be used to endorse a product or sell a product or further a cause or an ideology. in this case the uniform was used by an outside entity. >> that cause is a mom-to-mom cause. some posting positive comments and others saying the photos are a disgrace to the uniform. the group fired back saying the military photographs were never meant to exploit, promote, or to use the uniform to help our
