Three longtime Lake Charles fire fighters honored for years of service

Good Evening,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

It is getting cold out there. Tonight Southwest Louisiana is under a hard freeze warning on what could be the coldest night of year. Meteorologist Ben Terry is in tonight for Cedric and has your forecast. Ben is also predicting a strong chance of showers on New Year's Eve.

Plus, three longtime fire fighters retire from the Lake Charles Fire Department. KPLC's Olivia Vidal was there as the men were honored for their years of service.

We'll also have the latest from Washington on what lawmakers are doing to find a compromise to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.   

And in tonight's Healthcast report how a chemotherapy shortage may be causing some patients to have a relapse.

In Sports… she's down to just two sportscasts left before she heads to Oklahoma City. Sam Gannon has highlights from the New Orleans Hornets game.

We'll see you tonight at ten for these stories and more. Until then we're always on at kplctv.com.
