Monday Afternoon Headlines

This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom.

Memorial Day is usually marked by family and friends honoring those who have given their lives fighting for our freedom. But this Memorial Day turned into a nightmare for a mother and her unborn child. Their house went up in flames on a Memorial Day fire in Lake Charles.

And we'll go out to Orange Grove-Graceland Cemetery for the annual Avenue of Flags on this Memorial Day. Plus show you how the rest of the country marked this special time.

And how's this for service to your country? We'll have the story of a 94-year-old woman from Oakdale who served on jury duty during last week's high profile murder case in Oberlin.

Temperatures will be warm with highs near 90 degrees and lows in the low 70s for the next couple of days. But the humidity will make it feel more like the mid 90s during the afternoon hours; use caution and drink plenty of water if you are going to be outside.

Coming up on 7 News at Six Sports, we'll take a look at the LSU Baseball team's road to Omaha on the College World Series. We'll also see how the LSU Softball team won their way to the College World Series in Oklahoma City. Plus, we'll have highlights from this afternoon's Game of the Astros doubleheader with the Rockies.

Those stories and more today on Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
