10:08 a.m. A man and his wife, both residents of Conrad Drive, are engaged in an unusual conflict as they navigate the throes of divorce. Evidently, the fellow has allowed his cat to reside at the woman’s home but will not purchase food for the creature. The cat must now eat the woman’s cat food, causing her much distress.

8:20 p.m. Massive amounts of smoke emanated from an electrical fire on Larch Lane in Columbia Falls. The blaze, which originated in a ceiling fan, was completely contained in the bathroom.
