Birmingham (AL) Firefighter’s Lawsuit Over Fire Station

A Birmingham firefighter who works in the building is suing the city and mayor saying the building has made him sick, reports 6 WBRC.

Birmingham firefighter Michael Horsley says asbestos, mold and other issues at Fire Station 27 made him sick. The federal lawsuit claims Horsley and other current and former Birmingham fire employees have been forced to work in dangerous conditions at the east Birmingham fire station.

The station has been closed since the summer because of health concerns, but the city says those problems have been fixed and the station is back open and safe for employees.
