Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Waverly Fire being Investigated as Arson

Updated: Monday, July 14 2014, 10:17 AM CDT

Tonight, the State Fire Marshal is investigating a possible arson just outside Waverly.

Last night around six o'clock, a shed burned to the ground destroying $100,000 Worth of contents, including sound system equipment.

A truck worth more than $10,000 is also a complete loss.

Fire crews from both Waverly and Franklin fought the fire for more than three hours.

Waverly Fire Chief, Glen Brown, says the biggest challenge crews faced was explosions coming from inside the shed.

"They had a settling tank and oxygen tanks and propane tanks and gas cans. We're very fortunate nobody got hurt and didn't hurt their living quarters," Brown said.

Chief Brown says nobody was home at the time of the blaze .
