Frigid Wind Chills, Browns Stadium Renovations Begin, Toledo Teen Pulls Neighbors From Fire

TUESDAY: Mostly cloudy and flurries. High: 12
TUESDAY NIGHT:  Bitterly cold, wind chill down to -7. Chance of snow. LOW: 1
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy and chance of snow. High: 13

Weather pending, the first stage of renovations will begin Tuesday afternoon at Cleveland's First Energy Stadium.
Crews are taking apart the west end zone exterior, including the scoreboard. 
It's part one of a two-year renovation to modernize the stadium, but there are a lot of questions over the hefty price tag of $120M.
Taxpayers are paying for nearly half the project. 

An east Toledo family made it out of their burning home thanks to the help of a 16-year-old neighbor. 
Shannon Hovey says her 16-year-old daughter Allie didn't want to be interviewed because she doesn't feel like she did anything special - but she did.
"She doesn't feel like a hero," Hovey said. "She doesn't feel like she did anything that she shouldn't have done. She just reacted and just did what needed to be done to make sure the kids were okay and everyone was okay."
Hovey says she first saw the Gill Street fire on her security camera early Sunday morning. Once she realized it was her neighbor's house on fire, she told Allie and her boyfriend. That's when Allie sprung into action, without her mother's knowledge.
