Sixth-grader Chloe Stirling will soon be back in the cupcake business.
Officials in Madison County, Illinois, had ordered the 11 year old to stop baking cupcakes for sale, because the kitchen in her home didn't meet health department standards.
The Triad Middle schooler and her parents told their story on the "Rachael Ray Show" that aired Thursday. And a local plumbing company is upgrading the family kitchen thanks to donations of money and equipment.
Chloe says she wants to use the money from her "Hey Cupcake!" business to someday buy a car.
A Troy, Illinois man is facing charges for allegedly downloading child pornography.
The Madison County Sheriff's office started investigating Tyler Bergland after receiving a tip from a national organization that someone at a home in the town had downloaded the child port. Yesterday, authorities searched Bergland's house and found the images.
Bergland is held on a $100,000 bond.
Flames could be seen shooting through the roof of the home by neighbors. Fox 2 reports three people got out safely. They are Annie Herrin, her daughter Courtney and her boyfriend, Paul Coopman. Coopman reportedly was awakened by an explosion coming from the garage and was able to get the women out safely. There's still no word on a cause but firefighters are not considering it a suspicious fire.
Fox 2 reports three months ago the family buried Annie's husband, 47-year-old Jimmy Herrin, died from pancreatic cancer. A trust fund for the family has been set up at US Bank in Troy, Illinois.
It had begun around 10:30 Monday morning. Police say an armed man in his 40s had barricaded himself inside a home in the 500 block of Woodthrust Street. Police say the man had threatened to take his own life, and possible attack police as well.
Police had tried to talk the man out, but moved in after negotiations broke down.
The man was taken to a hospital for observation.
