What we are working on Thursday morning

Good Thursday morning!

Here are some of the stories we're following right now:

The City of Memphis is preparing for an influx of heat. They are expecting to get a lot more heat related calls. We'll update you on what Memphis, Shelby County and others are doing to combat the heat today--as the heat index is expected to reach the highest number of the week.

A man says two people posing as Shelby Co. deputies, tried to force him inside his home with guns after they said they wanted to talk to him about a rape.  The man would not go inside the home. We'll explain what happened and what investigators are saying about these so called "deputies."

Memphis police uncovered a brothel being operated out of a Cooper-Young home. Police say the suspects rented the home on Airbnb while the owners were away on vacation. After a stakeout, a raid at the home uncovered used condoms, marijuana, and a gun. Neighbors are being credited for helping uncover the operation. We have a new update information on this morning.

There will be a job fair at the DoubleTree in Memphis today and there will be a lot of great jobs up for grabs.  Some of them pay $70,000.  We'll explain to people when and where and how they can apply.
