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.
