Bizarre blaze

We rushed to the scene of a liquor store fire this morning and saw firefighters were able to extinguish it quickly. But then we learned about the extremely bizarre circumstances on how it started. Caleb Beames will bring you the full report at 6. Plus, you can hear the 911 call from the man whose truck started it.

Wednesday, we told you about the Lufkin couple who received separate verdicts following trials in their child's death who now face new criminal charges. Today, we learned how law enforcement believes they misrepresentated themselves to get prescription pills.

Not only is the "ranch of downtown Dallas" opening up a second location, but it's bringing 150 jobs to Lufkin. Michelle Reed explains at 10.

Good health is a common holiday toast. A lot of people try to fulfill it during the busy months of November and December. At 6, Donna McCollum explains how patients are packed in to doctor's offices and surgery wings so as not to miss out on annual health benefits.

A Lufkin man is found guilty of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl after he got her drunk and high. Francesca Washington has the story at 6.

A Nacogdoches veterinarian claims her study proves the existence of Bigfoot. Tonight at 10, Bob Hallmark shows how it's got East Texas research organizations very excited.
