Early morning fire on Bay Avenue

Bay Avenue house fire

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — An investigation is underway Thursday morning into the cause of a house fire in Birmingham. The fire broke out a little before 3 am on the 1500 block of Bay Avenue. One person was inside but got out safely.

When firefighters first arrived they went inside to try and put the fire out. But the conditions got so dangerous they had to pull out. The Battalion Chief says that’s always a difficult decision.

The home was a total loss, but thankfully, as mentioned earlier, no one was hurt.
