Major Thanksgiving fire at Princeton Elks Lodge

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Elks Lodge Burns

Fire crews in Gibson County are currently battling a fire at the Elks Lodge on Hart Street in Princeton. It started just after midnight.  The Sheriff's Office is advising residents to avoid North Main, West Emerson and West Brumfield. Mutual aid has been called to help.  Nicole will be live with the latest.

Frigid Thanksgiving

Temps will start in the teens early and only warm into the upper 30s this afternoon. Less windy this afternoon and slightly warmer than Wednesday but still 10-12 degrees below normal.   Byron has the forecast.

Travel issues

Rain, sleet and snow aren't stopping holiday travelers from reaching their destinations before the Thanksgiving Day meal.  The storm that started in the West over the weekend has left parts of upstate New York with 3 to 9 inches of snow, 1 to 3 inches in parts of West Virginia and rain and sleet in other areas.

Parade Balloons

Millions of spectators in New York City are hoping Mother Nature cooperates for this morning's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The big storm that roared through the East brought high winds with it and there are worries the traditional balloons might have to be grounded. The forecast so far is within acceptable limits.

So enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
