Investigators look for clues in Tuskegee Univ. campus blaze

Thursday - July 14, 2011

Hello from the WSFA 12 Newsroom! It's almost the weekend....

Tonight, we're following up on a story we broke at 6 p.m. with viewer-submitted video of a fire on the campus of Tuskegee University.  The Tuskegee Fire Department sent out an SOS for help in containing and eventually dousing the flames leaping from the roof of an apartment building.  They got it out shortly after 6:30 p.m.  Now, investigators are hard at work trying to find out what caused it.  Some residents wondered out loud if lightning might be responsible.

The City of Montgomery unveiled the "new" Cramton Bowl with the All Star Sports Week football game.  So far, the city has spent more than $8-million to redo the Madison Avenue entrance, remodel the press box, build new concessions and construct new restrooms.  It's an amazing change....that will make the historic stadium competitive with other venues around the southeast.  Oh yes, we'll also have highlights from tonight's All Star football match up.

In Auburn, scientists are working to trying and find a way to save the poisoned Toomer's Corner oak trees.  At the same time others are creating an exact 3-D model of the trees to preserve them forever.  We'll show you the work on both fronts in a special report, "Care for the Corner."

And, Rich says we may get more rain tomorrow - and catch a break from the unseasonably high temperatures earlier in the week.

Hope you get a good night's sleep...but don't pull the covers up over your head until you watch the news at 10!
