Firefighters were still hosing down hot spots and keeping an eye out for flames Friday night at the scene of a fire that destroyed a building and blanketed downtown Birmingham in smoke for much of the afternoon.
At 10 p.m., firefighters still had one truck in use to contain three hot spots in the pile of debris, a firefighter said.
The building had been the home of Action Printing and Supplies, among other businesses, but had been vacant for years. No injuries were reported.
