Weekdays at 3 p.m. in the East and high noon in the West!

The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

A southern California wildfire rages out of control, tripling in size in just a matter of hours. One firefighter says things could get really bad "at any second." Now, the struggle to tame the flames before they threaten an upscale community. FOX's Trace Gallagher is live with the latest.

Then, the Senate is voting on whether to renew the Patriot Act — a move that would make most of it permanent. But some senators have threatened to hold up the bill, saying it goes too far in restricting civil liberties. We'll get insight from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News senior judicial analyst.

And, do the political battles in Washington have an impact on U.S. troop morale in Iraq? We'll ask retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Donald Edwards.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
