Firefighters battle large apartment fire and Joyce Garrard's husband speaks out

Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you made it through this Monday. Here are some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Large apartment fire

We're heading to the scene of some breaking news tonight, a major apartment fire in Bessemer that looks to be affecting a lot of families. Our Sherea Harris is on scene and tweeting (@ShereaHarris) and she'll have live updates for us beginning on FOX6 News at 9.

Joyce Garrard

And I've been waiting to see this story all day: the husband of Joyce Garrard, the grandmother convicted of running her granddaughter to death, is talking publicly for the first time and he says his wife's sentence of life without parole handed down today is wrong and calls her "completely innocent." How he reached that conclusion is something he's sharing with our Christy Hutchings and we'll have his comments up on our WBRC News App and MyFoxAL.com soon and you can see them tonight on FOX6 News at 9 and 10.
