Madison fire officials honored a young man for his bravery and courage.

A small kitchen fire started on July 31st at the home of Glenn and Tess Ashmore.

The young man across the street, Jay Fairrow, quickly grabbed a fire extinguisher and put out the flames. Thanks to Fairrow quick actions, the house only suffered smoke damage.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
