Halifax County authorities say a fire death appears to be an accident. They're now awaiting autopsy results to figure out how a man died while burning brush Friday. Officials say the fire started shortly after three o'clock at Neal's Corner Road in Clover. 78-year-old *James Wilburn* was found dead after the fire was put out. Preliminary investigations show Wilburn fell and broke his leg -- and was unable to escape as the fire spread.

A man charged with kidnapping someone he knows is sitting in jail today. Witnesses told Roanoke City Police they saw the kidnapping around 11-thirty Saturday morning in the 52-hundred block of Williamson Road. A car was stopped a short time later on Plantation, where authorities arrested 45-year old Jeffrey Thomas. Thomas is charged with abduction and assault. He's held at the Roanoke City Jail without bond.

Now many states have EXTRA vaccine -- no shortage at all. One reason is because people took to heart that the supply should be saved for those most in need. But it was still a good year for the business. More than a third of the high risk group got the jab, and now clinics are asking the government to lift restrictions on who can get one, and the C-D-C agrees. That's because more than 30-thousand Americans die from the flu each year - 200-thousand are hospitalized.
