House fire on Middle Street
A fire struck a Cape Girardeau home early this afternoon, causing extensive damage to the top floor of a 1.5 story house on North Middle Street.
Luckily no one was injured in the fire, though several people were at the home when the blaze broke out.
Victims of fatal crash identified; ice causes wrecks
Yesterday we told you about a crash that claimed the lives of three people in Ripley County in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks. Now the victims of that fiery crash have been identified, as authorities continue to try to find out just what caused it.
Car crashes were a frequent sight around Southeast Missouri late last night and early this morning, as a thin layer of ice coated roadways around the region.
Monday night the ice caused accidents on the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge and on Highway 25 near Dutchtown, and this morning Cape Girardeau police responded to a dozen of them.

The city announced today at a noon news conference that Leslie is stepping down from the post, taking an early retirement, effective March 1. Leslie has been city manager since 2003, and held other posts in the city government, including Public Works Director, long before that.
