NEW overnight: Four escape dangerous house fire

Hello. It's Wednesday, February 26. It's Christine Nelson checking in. I wanted you to personally have a first look at the stories making headlines on WBTV News This Morning. After you read this go ahead and tune in to get all the details on new and developing stories from overnight.

OVERNIGHT: Our WBTV crew raced to the scene of a house fire overnight. This happened in Lincoln County and we weren't sure whether people were living in the home or not. After asking officials and neighbors we found out four people were living there. We'll have the latest details on what happened.

NEW: Officer-involved shooting in York County

State law enforcement in South Carolina has a new case to handle from overnight. A York County deputy was involved in a shooting. We'll tell you what happened.

Duke Energy making headlines again this morning. The new message reportedly being sent to customers near the coal ash spill about consuming the water there. People might not be too happy about this one...

Plus, spring break is saved! Remember the uproar from Charlotte-Mecklenburg School parents about using part of their spring break to make up for missed snow days?? Well the details we share on air this morning will make a lot of people happy and relieved.

I have to go and get ready to be on set. See you on the air!
