19 firefighters killed fighting a growing wildfire

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

*19 firefighters are dead after battling a growing wildfire in Prescott, Arizona.  All were members of the city's fire department.  We'll have the full story on this morning's Sunrise.

*New from overnight, a tragic drowning is under investigation in Sabine Parish where a two-year-old girl died.  Find out what led to the drowning and who discovered her body in a swimming pool.

*Lake Charles police believe three Houston men arrested in a so-called "Pigeon Drop" scam may have possibly targeted other victims and got away with more money.  We'll tell you why your help is needed in narrowing down the scope of this crime.

*It's a big day in Texas today as lawmakers get started with round two in the battle over abortion limits.  A democratic filibuster and protests last week prevenTed the measure from passing.  It would ban abortions after 20 weeks and change the law over where abortions can be performed.

*Looking to complete your family with a pet?  We're opening the Sunrise Pet Shop this morning to introduce you to an animal up for adoption.

Make it a Sunrise day!
