Birmingham Apartment Fire
The Red Cross is assisting residents of an apartment building that caught fire mid-day Friday.
The Steiner Avenue Apartments are located at 1305 Steiner Avenue.
We are still doing damage assessment -- but it appears that at least 8 units are a total loss, and a few others have water damage.
At this time, we are putting a shelter on stand-by as a precaution, but have not made a definite decision about opening it to those people displaced.
