East Thomas Apartments
In April 2023 the City of Birmingham notified the owners that the property was not in compliance with the city's property maintenance code and set a May 27 deadline for repairs. A large section of the complex was damaged in fire which broke out on May 28. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The city subsequently filed a civil lawsuit in order to have the property declared a public nuisance.
