Overnight fire destroys vehicles, boats, tractor

Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*New from overnight: a Westlake family is safe this morning after an overnight fire on their property. We'll take you to the scene this morning where a fire engulfed a shop, three vehicles, two boats, a tractor and a golf cart.

*The battle over common core may soon be heading to court. The Board of Elementary and Secondary Education held a special meeting to figure out what to do for the upcoming school year and the debate got quite heated. Find out where it goes from here.

*A murder trial continues today in Lake Charles. Armonta Hadnot is facing three counts of first degree murder and three counts of attempted first degree murder. We'll tell you what a witness to the gunfire had to say on the stand.

*A new accreditation will now allow SOWELA credits and curriculum to be transferred and accepted at other schools with the same accreditation. We will have a live interview with SOWELA Chancellor Dr. Neil Aspinwall about the exciting changes.

Make it a Sunrise day!
