FILE -A grounded 79 ft fishing boat called "Pacific Paradise" caught fire on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017, shortly after 10 am near Kaimana Beach in Honolulu. No injuries were reported. A boat that ran aground off Honolulu while transporting foreign fishermen to work in Hawaii's commercial fishing industry has raised new questions about the safety and working conditions for foreign laborers in this unique U.S. fleet. A long, cramped journey to the United States for a group of fishermen from Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Kirabati ended last week with a rescue by the U.S. Coast Guard after their fishing vessel smashed into a reef just off Waikiki's shore.(Cindy Ellen Russell /The Star-Advertiser via AP, File)

This undated historical image courtesy of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission shows the painting of the Alamo building when the battle ended. Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is overseeing a 7-year, $450 million revamp of the Alamo, where 189 independence fighters were killed in 1836.
