Bitter cold - Alexander County fire - Unemployment benefits

Good morning!

It's another bitterly cold day out, so be sure to bundle up and limit your outdoor time.

Holly Brantley and I will be out and about this morning with tips on how to stay warm and how the cold weather has impacted local hospitals and roads.

A log cabin in Alexander County near Olive Branch was destroyed by fire Monday night. We'll have the latest at 5.

The Senate is back in action Tuesday with a vote that may or may not extend unemployment benefits for millions of Americans.
