Good morning!

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

A Coast Guard spokesman says there was a helicopter crash in the Gulf of Mexico near Venice, La. We're told one person died in the crash, two were injured and one was unharmed. We'll tell you what we know at noon.

And an historic home caught fire late Tuesday in DeRidder. The home was heavily damaged. No word yet on injuries. You can read more HERE.

In weather, Ben says SWLA will have another pleasant day with plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will top out in the lower 80s this afternoon with a light east breeze. Tune in for a look at the rest of the week. You can always find weather information online HERE.

Also today, he's not even old enough to drink, but an 11-year-old boy in Colorado wants to boldly go where no child has gone before! He's brewing a beer that can be used in space!

Plus, you don't have to break out the veggies and the juicer for a healthy drink. Find out how you can still get healthy on the go, by juicing from a bottle.

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