MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — From Donald Trump’s continuing transition to wildfires to the south, here are the four stories to know for Tuesday, Nov. 16.

Trump Transition

President-Elect Donald Trump continues to put together his administration with inauguration day a little more than two months away. Trump’s transition appeared to be in disarray Tuesday, after former Republican Congressman Mike Rogers announced he was quitting the team. Trump later went on Twitter to ensure the public his transition process was “very organized.”

Southern Wildfires

The battle continues in the south against dozens of wildfires inching closer to homes. At least 31 fires are now burning in 7 states fueled by a drought, low humidity and autumn leaves. People who live near the Georgia-North Carolina border are being urged to wear protective masks outdoors.

Nike Shoes

If you’re eyeing a pair of Nike’s new self-lacing sneakers — get ready to pay up. Nike says they’ll cost you $720. Select users of the Nike Plus app will get early access to buy the shoe on Nov. 28. Everyone else can pick them up later next month.

Sexiest Man Alive

People Magazine has named its sexiest man alive. It’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson! Ellen DeGeneres broke the news to him on her show Tuesday. People’s cover says “He’s sweet, smart and sculpted.” The former WWE champ turned actor is 44-years-old.
