After 12 years in business, a Cape Girardeau family clinic is told to stop serving the public.  Crystal Britt is live at the Midtown Family Medical Center with answers on why this is happening now.

An explosion and house fire last night caused by a "shake and bake" meth lab in Advance has led to the arrest of three people.
