   Students in the Normandy School District are getting an unexpected three-day weekend thanks to a water main that burst near the UMSL campus Thursday.  

   The main has been repaired, but a boil order is in effect for about 2,200 Missouri American water customers.  That includes parts of Bel Ridge, Belle Rive, Bel Nor, Normandy and St. John.  

   As a result, all schools in the Normandy School District will be closed Friday.

   Other schools in the affected area are open, but school leaders are asking students to bring a bottle of drinking water with them. 

   The UMSL campus had shut down on Thursday because of the break, canceling day and evening classes. University officials say even though they are still under a boil order, classes will resume Friday morning.  

   Missouri American officials say they hope to life the boil order Friday afternoon.

   Parents in the De Soto School District are being warned about an outbreak of scabies.  

   District 73 officials sent a letter home with students Thursday notifying parents that one high school student, a junior high student, and an elementary student have been sent home with the skin condition.  

   Scabies is caused by tiny mites burrowing beneath the skin.  It's extremely itchy and highly contagious.  

   District officials say they are taking steps to disinfect schools.

   Students with scabies can't return to school without a doctor's note.

   De Soto is about 50 miles south of St. Louis in Jefferson County.

   CHICAGO (AP) - The Illinois Department of Insurance and the state's major health insurer say they are reviewing changes to the health law announced Thursday by President Barack Obama that address policy cancellations.

   Obama said insurers can continue to sell policies canceled under the Affordable Care Act for at least one more year to existing customers. But insurers aren't required to continue the canceled plans.

   Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois officials say the company is "determining next steps" and will reach out to consumers who may have new options as a result of Obama's announcement.

   A spokesman says Illinois Insurance Director Andrew Boron has been in contact with federal authorities and is evaluating options, keeping in mind what's best for the state's consumers.

   At least 4 million Americans have received cancellation notices.

   A two-alarm brush fire that destroyed several buildings in rural Franklin County Thursday night is prompting a warning from fire officials.  

   It took dozens of firefighters more than an hour to extinguish a brush fire along Highway BB near Beverly Court in Cedar Hill.  No one was hurt, but the fire destroyed a camper and several out buildings in the rural community.

   Cedar Hill Fire Chief Terry Soer says the blaze began as a controlled burn that got out of hand.  The chief told Fox 2 News that brush fires are a real risk this time of year.

"Right now we're really concerned because of the low humidity," he said.  "The leaf cover is very heavy.  Obviously, we're encouraging people -- no burning outside, or anything like that."

   Chief Soer says the rain that's expected this weekend will take some of the pressure off.
