Tonight at 10, Storm Tracker Meteorologist Brett Collar joins us with some great news about local burn bans. He's been closely tracking how the recent rain has affected the dry conditions that have made local authorities so nervous, lately. He's in the Weather Center gathering the latest information so he can let you know if the burn ban has been lifted where you live.
We were there as two garbage trucks burned in Smith County. Mitch Goulding has a new report that explains how flames managed to ignite inside a parked garbage vehicle and kept fire crews busy for hours.
Joan Hallmark has a new Proud of East Texas report for you. Tonight at 10, she'll share the story of Taylor Heard who is hoping her brilliant showing at the John Ritter Tribute Showcase in Carthage leads her to the type of careers East Texans Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves now enjoy.
