Arsons Taking Toll on Alabama Firefighters

Birmingham (AL) firefighters are feeling the toll of a string of arsons in the city’s west side, reports Fox 6 WBRC (http://bit.ly/Lg4bjM). The news station reports that in less than two weeks, at least 12 fires have occurred that authorities believe are connected.

All have been set in vacant structures in the early mornings in the Ensley community.

A fire official told the news station that concern exists for the occupied structures beside the vacant structures, as well as depleting resources and risking firefighters’ lives.
