DeQuncy family loses home to fire

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on today.

A DeQuincy family loses their home to an overnight fire. The Red Cross is now assisting.

Plus, fresh off of Black Friday, shoppers continue to hit local stores for "Small Business Saturday." KPLC's Haley Rush talks with shoppers and store owners who encourage people to shop local this Christmas.

U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu says problems with the Affordable Care Act healthcare website will be fixed and more Louisiana residents will have access to medical care. Landrieu made the comments today at an event hosted by the Louisiana Legislative Black Caucus.

Also, Christmas came early on the U.S.S. Orleck. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo was there as the children were greeted by old Saint Nick.

And the warmer weather has returned to Southwest Louisiana… but for how long? Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has all the details in his forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Six for all these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplct.com.
