SOUR LAKE - Investigators tell KFDM News a fire that heavily damaged the Sour Lake post office may been set by a homeless man and the post office will have to be relocated. A spokesperson for the postal service says it'll place boxes in a portable building in Sour Lake to allow that service to continue while the customers will have to go to the Kountze post office to transact business.

District Chief Glenn Withers tells KFDM there was significant damage to the inside of the building and the framework for the post office boxes, but he says most of the mail wasn't damaged. He told us there is water damage to some of the mail.



USW International issues strike notice

PITTSBURGH - The United Steelworkers International Union has issued a strike notice in advance of the contract expiration at midnight.

Spokeswoman Lynn Hancock tells KFDM News the notice is a legal requirement, notifying plants of a possible strike, but doesn't mean a strike will take place.

Contracts affecting thousands of refinery and petrochemical workers in Southeast Texas are set to expire at 12:01.

The contracts include local and national issues.

Even without an agreement, a contract extension can allow workers to continue at their jobs while both sides negotiate.


BPD: Argument about woman leads to stabbing


An argument over a woman led to a stabbing that left 19-year-old Beaumont man with non-life threatening injuries.

At about 9:08 on January 30, patrol officers responded to the Regent I Apartment in the 1700 block of Regent in reference to a man with a knife. When officers arrived, they found a 19-year-old Beaumont man suffering from a stab wound.

Witnesses told officers that the victim had been involved in an argument over a woman with a 26-year-old Beaumont man. The argument turned into a physical fight and the younger man knocked out the older man. The younger man then left and went to an adjacent apartment. The older man regained consciousness, grabbed a knife, and went to confront the younger man. During the second altercation, the older man cut the younger man's arm and stabbed him once in the shoulder. The attacker then fled on foot.

Beaumont EMS transported the stabbing victim to St. Elizabeth ER where physicians treated and released him.

Detectives have identified the attacker and patrol officers are still attempting to locate him. Once found, the man will face charges of aggravated assault.

The U.S. Department of Labor's wage and hour division officials say they are aggressively expanding efforts to combat the misclassification of employees as independent contractors.
