Good morning!

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

An incredible explosion rocks a Texas industrial plant near San Antonio this morning. It happened at a Karnes County oil field in Gillett – about an hour's drive southeast of San Antonio. The incident left one man with burns and part of a nearby highway closed as a precaution.

Folks who travel in downtown Lake Charles will notice the newly completed Gill Street extension. It extends from Lakeshore Drive west to Bord du Lac. This morning was the formal ribbon cutting.

Also today, an Arkansas toddler is a hero – alerting his family, and escaping from their home just moments before it went up in flames.

Plus, more arrests in the case of a family terrorized by a gang of motorcycle riders. Find out what investigators have now learned in a case that's sparked nationwide attention.

Another case getting a lot of attention involves a daycare worker accused of having sex with two infants! You can read more about it HERE as the suspect makes a plea in court.

In weather, Ben tells me to expect plenty of sunshine and highs only in the 70s to near 80 today.  In fact, it's so nice, he's decided to take his weathercast on the road – join us at noon to see where he'll pop up.    

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