Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for FOX6 News this evening.

City council backs UAB football

The Birmingham City Council is ready to join the push to bring football back to UAB but council members want to see how much support is being gathered by a boosters group. We'll take a look at that growing support and what it could mean on FOX6 News at 5.

Help for fire victims

Sixty people were forced out of their homes by a Bessemer apartment fire on Monday. Today we'll show you how they are being helped in more ways than one.

Former police chief answers call

Former Tuscaloosa Police Chief Ken Swindle helped bring a police standoff to a peaceful end today. Swindle was able to talk the man into giving himself up peacefully and the suspect's family members say it was a great example of professional law enforcement. We'll show you what happened.
