Three things you need to know today.
Texas fire: Authorities were working on plans Friday to return home residents forced to flee a wildfire in northern Texas, a day after firefighters made progress battling the blaze that destroyed dozens of homes.
The blaze in Palo Pinto County scorched 6,200 acres by Thursday, according to the Texas Forest Service. The fire is burning near the resort of Possum Kingdom Lake, near the town of Brad, about 100 miles west of Dallas.
"We feel much better about this fire today" as the blaze is now 50% contained, said John Nichols, a spokesman for the Forest Service.
He said evacuations were lifted for some residents forced to evacuate the fire, which was driven by high temperatures and dry winds.
Clemens' trial: A judge will hold a hearing Friday to consider whether former Major League pitcher Roger Clemens should be retried for allegedly lying to Congress.
The case against Clemens - who is accused of one count of obstruction of Congress, three counts of making false statements and two counts of perjury - was declared a mistrial in July after evidence previously ruled inadmissable was shown in court.
U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton will consider how to resolve the case at Friday's hearing in Washington.
Casey Anthony: Casey Anthony's attorneys will be in court Friday fighting a motion by prosecutors to have herÂ reimburse the costs ofÂ the investigation of her daughter's disappearanceÂ and death.
Court documents filed by the state attorney's office and lawÂ enforcement agencies indicate those costs are more than $350,000.
It is unclear whether Anthony will be at the hearing Friday in front of Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr.
Anthony has been in seclusion sinceÂ her July acquittal on murder charges in the 2008 death of herÂ 2-year-old daughter and her subsequent release from jail.
ButÂ in the same case, a Florida jury convicted her on four misdemeanorÂ counts of providing false information to law enforcement officers.
Prosecutors have cited a Florida law that allows the state to fine defendants in criminal cases to recoup money spent.
