Truck full of frozen chickens catches fire on I-10

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

*An overturned truck full of frozen chickens catches fire near the Jennings-Evangeline exit on I-10 westbound.  Louisiana State Police are working to clear the crash site, but advise the lane may be closed for the next six hours.  We have a photographer on the way to the scene to bring us live video of the wreck.

*The wait could soon be over for the opening of the Golden Nugget Casino-Resort in Lake Charles.  Find out when guests can book their rooms in the $700 million facility.

*Tougher rules may be on the way for child care centers and preschool programs in Louisiana.  The changes add fingerprint-based criminal background checks for employees and volunteers.  Will BESE members vote for or against this proposal?  We have a preview of the vote this morning.

*SOWELA Chancellor, Dr. Neil Aspinwall, is our Sunrise guest this morning.  He will be talking about the expansion of three in-demand programs equipping students for the workforce and upcoming job opportunities.

Make it a Sunrise day!
