Sanderson Farms fire

Happy Friday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 51 degrees this morning and now it's starting to feel like fall. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will talk about the cool down, the Friday Nite Lites football forecast and he'll give us an outlook on weekend weather in his First Alert Forecast.

Breaking news, fire investigators in Rankin County are trying to figure out what caused the Sanderson Farms Chicken Processing Plant in Flowood to catch on fire. Jewell Hillery will join us throughout the WLBT AM Report with live updates from the scene. 

Plus, it will be tough for Jackson State to play a homecoming game if their opponent doesn't take the field. The latest on the grumbling at Grambling and the impact it could have on this weekend's festivities, is at the top of the hour.

And, a gas station owner was gunned down last weekend and now Jackson Police believe they have the two men responsible in custody.

All of that and much more is headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now we'll be waiting for you on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great weekend!
