Making Headlines:

Under Investigation: The McCracken County Sheriff's Department is looking for suspects after a meth lab sparked a car fire late Tuesday night. Investigators say the driver ran away before police and fire crews got on scene.

Overnight fire: A home caught fire early Wednesday morning in Christopher, Ill. According to central dispatch, no one was injured, but the cause of the fire remains unknown.

Down stream: The fuel that spilled into the Wabash River has begun to move down stream near Paducah, Ky. A leak in a pipeline near Mount Carmel is to blame.

Search for help: The community of Mound City is searching for a new police chief after asking the previous man in charge to resign. This comes after four out of five officers walked off the job last week.
