Fire destroys structure in DeQuincy, no injuries reported

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*Our 7News photographer just returned from the scene of a major fire in DeQuincy off HWY 27.  He says it took several fire departments to extinguish the flames and the shed behind a bar was totally destroyed.

*Less than a month after his arrest, suspected serial killer Felix Vail appears in court for a motions hearing involving the death of his wife, Mary Horton.  It's a case that dates back to 1962.  Find out why the defense is requesting more information.

*The Port of Lake Charles moves forward with its lease agreement to build a housing facility on about 200 acres of land off HWY 397.  It will become home to 4,000 workers.  We'll have details on this development.

*In the five parish area, only a handful of hospitals have fully-functioning, 24-hour staffed cath labs.  When a person outside of the Lake area has a heart attack, that situation truly becomes life-threatening with state-of-the-art healthcare miles away.  I'll explain how a newly launched network is changing the way cardiologists connect to rural cardiac patients.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    Local business people are raising a red flag on proposed changes in Calcasieu Parish's sewerage ordinance. Some predict a huge cost increase at multiple levels for developers, realtors and consumers. However, parish officials say those who have read proposed revisions have only seen them because they were seeking input from various segments of the community.
