Fire continues apartment complex's unlucky streak

By Melanie Posey

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) – A north Birmingham apartment complex continues to be plagued by troubles.   

On Saturday evening, a fire damaged several units of the Uptown Apartment complex in the Norwood community. The Birmingham Chapter of the American Red Cross assisted ten families.   

The Uptown Apartments is the same complex where two year old George Amison was killed in 2006. Later that year, the apartment's owners came under scrutiny from the city for failing to keep up repairs.  

Then, the following year, another man was killed in the complex's drive.  

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
