Crews battle early morning fire

Emergency crews in Huntsville were called to an early morning fire at the Hillside Village apartment complex on Bonnell Drive in Huntsville. The fire began in the kitchen of one of the units just after 1 a.m. No injuries were reported and the American Red Cross is on the scene to help displaced residents. The cause of the fire is unknown.


Verdict watch continues

The deadlocked jury in the Eric Parker retrial will continue Wednesday morning. Tuesday, the judge in the trial ordered the jury to continue their deliberations after they said they were unable to reach a unanimous verdict in the case. Parker's previous trial ended in a mistrial after the jury then was also unable to reach a unanimous verdict.


Some foggy areas affecting commutes

Fog could be locally dense in some areas, causing some delays as you make your morning commute. Be sure to allot yourself a few extra minutes for traffic delays. Temperatures today will be unseasonably warm, topping into the low-to-mid 70s.
