Wrong kind of water break

Several million gallons of water has poured into Lufkin since this morning, forcing the whole city under a boil-water notice after a water-main break. At 6, Maegan Prejean explains how this happened, what's being done about it and why a water-line break means you have to heat up the stove.

Also at 6, Donna McCollum brings you a bittersweet update on a Nacogdoches woman who narrowly escaped a house fire. She was burned while trying to rescue her mother in June. Her mother remained in a hospital for two months before dying. Tonight, Donna tells you who Sharon Teal has reason for hope and a neighborhood which is trying to help her out.

Teachers are always trying to find ways to teach their students. But one fun assignment has been going on for 14 years at Huntington Elementary. Caleb Beames hung out with students today to see how a lasagna garden works.

And at 5, we show you the dashcam video from Trinity police yesterday, who broke a car window to save a baby.

And of course, don't forget to catch Red Zone tonight, right after the 10 o'clock news. Justin Woodard brings you highlights from the oldest rivalry in Texas, along with scores and highlights from all over the area! And if you're at the game tonight and want to get some scores, keep watching our scoreboard on your KTRE mobile app!
