One man was badly burned this morning and two people were arrested after a fire at an apartment complex this morning on Carol St.  Investigators believe a meth lab caused the fire.  Watch 9News at 5 for more on this developing story.

The family of an 18-year-old says he was protecting his brother when he was shot to death last week by a 16-year-old.  They say the juvenile system is failing.  WAFB's Jim Shannon will have more tonight on 9News at 5.
