Smoldering skunk sets off brush blaze!

Good morning!

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Investigators in Acadia Parish have now identified the man found dead last week. It's a 31-year-old man from Honduras and authorities say he had been stabbed to death.

Also today, technology won't get healthy for you, but there are helpful tools in your quest for good health. We'll share some of them with you.

How do you deal with cockroaches? The pest have long been considered one of man's greatest foes, and now a new study reveals they are surviving our traditional methods of extermination. What do we do now?

Speaking of animals causing havoc, one particular animal caused a conflagration after it was set on fire! It's the bizarre tale of a skunk being set on fire and then running thru the grass setting off a huge blaze. Look for the case of the smoldering skunk at noon.

In weather, Ben tells me to expect another warm and dry day with afternoon highs into the low 90's. What about tomorrow and the rest of the work week? Can we expect any rain to cool us off? Look for the answer during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
