BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Good evening from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom. This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're following for you tonight

Contractor arrested on explosives charges

What a strange twist late today to that story out of Pell City where we all watched in horror and amazement as that 100-year old smokestack refused to be blown up, then almost killed a track hoe operator when he moved in to pull it down with the machine. Now, that demolition expert/track hoe operator is in jail tonight facing explosives charges and we’re digging hard into his background and on WBRC FOX6 News at 9 we hope to learn more about why these charges are being brought.
