Three fires erupt near Legion Field

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Three fires sparked within minutes of each other near Legion Field on Tuesday morning.

A little after 6:00 a.m., Birmingham fire crews responded to a fire at the old Legion Field Apartments on 8th Avenue West at 5th Street West. We are told no one was living in the building that caught fire.

Moments later and just around the block, the same crews had to go to a fire at a home on 7th Street West and 6th Avenue West. This home was also vacant, but was consumed by fire.

The owner of the home was on the scene and says he think it is suspicious.
There is not much information, but word has been received that a third fire has sparked on Fourth Court.
