'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Officials shut down traffic in the Squirrel Hill Tunnels Wednesday morning as Pittsburgh firefighters investigated a report of a light fixture on fire, an emergency dispatch supervisor said.

A caller reported the fire about 8:45 a.m., the supervisor said. Firefighters reopened outbound traffic at 8:55 a.m. and then reopened inbound traffic shortly after when they did not find a fire, the supervisor said.
