Close to 100 jobs leaving the Valley

Good morning!

Here's what we're working on in the WAFF 48 newsroom:

Around 100 jobs will be leaving the Valley.

Kennametals announced the closure of it's production plant in Grant.  It's a hard hit for the small town, where a lot of people are employed by the plant or provide services to its employees.

Also this morning, we have an update to a story we've been reporting on since last week.

Huntsville fire crews now know what caused part of an apartment complex to burn down.  They say maintenance work caused a spark that started a fire, which destroyed eight units at the Imperial Gardens Apartments.  They believe the fire started in two upstairs apartments.

And finally, it's another cold start to your day.  Meteorologist David Ernst is in our weather center tracking some warmer temperatures.

Join us this morning, before heading out for your day.
