Early Morning Blaze:

Investigators are still trying to figure out what started a fire at the Econo Auto Painting Shop, just after three o'clock this morning. It's located on the two-thousand block of Deans Bridge Road in Augusta. We're told no one was in the building at the time. Authorities say the fire could have started from a possible electrical shortage.

Warrenville Man Wanted:

Aiken County Deputies are trying to track down a Warrenville man.
29-year-old Clifton Young is also known as "Manzy." Deputies say he ran from them earlier this week during a drug investigation. Once he's caught, he'll face charges for trafficking cocaine, and for having marijuana.

Apartment Fire Update:

25 people, caught in a fire at Rivercreek Apartments, are still looking for a new home this morning. Fire Investigators believe it was an accident.
Everyone made it out of Wednesday night's fire safe and sound. The fire investigation is expected to last about a week. Authorities believe the blaze began in a bottom floor unit, and quickly spread.

Ravenel Sentencing:

A former South Carolina Treasurer should know his fate today. He's already been convicted of cocaine charges. Ravenel pleaded guilty in September, to conspiracy to possess, with the intent to distribute. Federal prosecutors have asked a judge to consider a reduced sentence.
