BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The cold weather proved to be a hurdle for firefighters Friday morning in East Birmingham.
Temperatures and sloping terrain made it difficult for firefighters to battle a house fire on Paragon Parkway.
The homeowner says she took her child to school and came home to a house that was up in smoke.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire from the outside of the structure.
The exact cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
