HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - Five children and four adults were injured when fire burned several units at The Lory of Hoover Apartments Tuesday, July 5, 2022.

The Assistant Fire Chief Michael Bartlett with Rocky Ridge Fire Department confirmed at first they had reports of children trapped and people jumping from the building.

A fire started at the same complex in December 2021. The Assistant Fire Chief said he does not think the two fires are related.
