Happy 4th Everyone.

There are plenty of events happening across the valley to celebrate our Independence. Make sure to tune in for a quick rundown at 5:00 & 6:00 a.m.

Also, a massive fire in Eva takes 10 different fire departments to put out. A family did escape before their home was fully engulfed. There are plenty of questions at this point, including if fireworks were a factor? We'll be live on the scene.

Firefighters warn us every year to be careful around fireworks. Also, keep in mind how dry conditions are across the valley. It won't take much today to spark a fire. At 5:30 & 6:30 a.m. we'll breakdown the do's & don'ts of celebrating safely.

If you plan on drinking this holiday, AAA is willing to tow your car for free. We'll give you all the details on how you can make it home safely.

Here's your question of the day. What's is appropriate, neighborly, and just plain good manners when it comes to popping fireworks? Of course, you know you can't pop fireworks within city limits but it's perfectly legal in the county. Should people pop fireworks past 9 p.m., 10 or even past midnight. Weigh in on this on our WAFF 48 Facebook page.

Let us get your holiday started. Tune in now for your forecast. Rains chances could wash out your celebration plans.\
