River Place Apartment Fire

North Shelby Fire / Hoover Fire

The night shots were given to me by Greg Wesson who watched the fire from his apartment only a few feet away. Thank you, Greg, for sharing them.

Below are a few shots I took of the aftermath. The crews from North Shelby Fire and Hoover Fire did a great job of preventing the fire, with flames 30 feet in the air upon their arrival, from spreading to exposures.

The fire destroyed four units and damaged a total of 16. There were some units in the effected building that only had water damage. AMAZING!

The American Red Cross is on the scene assisting people in need...

You can see this sign in the shot above...

If you rent, make sure you have renter's insurance.
