Snakes are out, and important pool safety tips

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happy Sunday!  Here's what we're working on at Tucson News Now…

We've been hearing so many calls on scanners for people requesting snake removal, and turns out, fire officials confirm those types of calls are up “significantly.”  Reporter Craig Reck is looking into what's drawing the critters out of hiding and closer to homes.

Reporter Cynthia Washington is working on pool safety tips… reminders for us all as weather gets warmer.  Yesterday a little girl almost drowned at a resort on the northwest side, so she'll have some important info for you.

Calm crowds last night following the Cats loss to Wisconsin, but Tucson police tell us they made one arrest.  Read more about that here.

A programming note, we can't wait to bring you the latest news at 5:30 p.m. on KOLD News 13, but the Elite 8 tournament might still be on.  We hope to see you soon, otherwise, enjoy the game!
