BIRMINGHAM - AL - Some people who live in the Phoenix Building apartments were allowed to return to their homes.  However, just after midnight, Birmingham Fire & Rescue crews asked some people to return outside.  They told residents the "scene was not secure."  A fire caused the entire building to be evacuated just before 11:00 p.m. Thursday night.  An apartment, located at 1710 2nd Avenue North, caught fire and Birmingham firefighters rushed out to extinguish it.

Police on the scene tell us no one was injured.  However, at this time, it is not clear what started the fire or how extensive it was.
