Roads are still slick today as more people ventured out in their vehicles. The Missouri State Highway Patrol is urging people to stay home unless it is an emergency to allow road crews to do their jobs.

One location particularly plagued with crashes this morning is Interstate 55 in Pemiscot County, Missouri between the 26 and 28 mile markers in the southbound lanes. Corporal Clark Parrott says the highway patrol worked between six to seven crashes or slide offs in that area. Most are minor crashes. One crash involved two semi trucks with minor injuries. Use caution on the roads and expect delays on I-55, especially as crews work to clean up wrecks.

Three fire departments battled a large machine shop fire near Grand Tower, Illinois. Arnold Wyrick was on the scene and brings us the latest.
