Red Cross Media Alerts
  Timber Ridge Apartment Fire
The Red Cross ARCHIE team responded to the Timber Ridge apartments to assist residents affected by an early morning fire. Eight units were destroyed and several people suffered injuries from smoke inhalation or broken bones. We're told some residents jumped from the second floor to escape the flames. According to a Birmingham Fire Service spokesperson, none of the injuries are life threatening.

People in 5 of the 8 units affected have family members in the hospital at this time. The Red Cross has already serviced 4 of the 8 families, will see another family this afternoon and is attempting to locate the two remaining families. The Red Cross has already provided food, clothing, shoes and other items to help clients with their immediate needs.

The apartment manager says each family will be able to relocate in other apartments that are available.
