BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
The Literacy Council of Central Alabama is searching for new office space after a fire Thursday.
Literacy Council Director Beth Wilder says they want to return to normal as soon as possible.
"We're most concerned about our learners. When I got here before eight o'clock this morning, the guys from the Jimmie Hale Mission were already lined up for class because they didn't know what happened and they were so upset. But the great thing was they offered to come inside and help clean up. So we just want to get them taken care of," Wilder said.
Wilder says from across the street, it didn't appear there was that much damage. That's why it was a complete shock when she entered the building.
"Had gallons and gallons, thousands of gallons of water that poured through," she said.
The past 24 hours have been emotional but Wilder says the community's response has been amazing. People have offered to help with the clean up and offered food and supplies.
She says there is no timeline right now as to when they will re-open.
