Two structure fires rip through Lake Charles, displacing a family and church

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Good Sunday evening, SWLA!

Gerron Jordan filling in for Lee Peck tonight.  Here's what we're working on for 7News Nightcast.

Two separate structure fires in Lake Charles today displace one family and destroys a decades old church.  We'll take you to both scenes in team coverage with KPLC's Monica Grimaldo and tell you how through the devastation, the victims are optimistic about moving forward.

After 30 years, the Pine Shadows Golf Course is closing at the end of the month.  KPLC's Haley Rush was at the course as local golf enthusiasts and regulars to the golf course said their goodbyes. 

Dozens of cats and cat lovers were in Vinton today for a cat show!  We'll show you the best of show and some of the winners in all of the categories.

The NFL Pro Bowl is underway in sunny Hawaii!  Weekend Sports Anchor Rebecca Cade will have highlights and a preview of next week's Super Bowl.

It was a beautiful day in southwest Louisiana today, but is another winter storm possible this week?  7Stormteam Meteorologist Zack Fradella will have that answer and much more in weather.

We hope you join us at 10 for 7News Nightcast.  Until then, we're always online at www.kplctv.com and on your mobile devices.
