Live with Camping Out for a Cause

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

*Lake Area voters line up in big numbers to vote early ahead of the December 6 run-off election.  Hear from voters who are eager to cast their ballots.

*An investigation is underway this morning to determine the cause of Sunday's fire at Phillips 66 in Westlake.  The fire broke out at the facility early yesterday morning.

*The 18th annual Campout for a Cause begins the morning in Lake Charles!  We will be checking in live with Chad Austin of KYKZ 96.1's morning show who will be camping for the next three days in front of Ashley Furniture.  It's all to collect food donations for Abraham's Tent.

*Congressman Charles Boustany stops by Fort Polk today to rally support for the post which he says is an important training ground for troops.  Find out what's in store on his stop.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking some cooler temperatures heading to Southwest Louisiana.  He'll have a look at rain chances and colder weather as we get closer to Thanksgiving day.

Make it a Sunrise day!
