A public safety evaluation on Martin Luther King Jr.'s  childhood house on Auburn Avenue starts today. The National Park Service says a "comprehensive condition assessment" will be done during the closure.

The park service says this will ensure public safety as well as protection of the historic site.

Since last year, the second floor of the civil rights leader's house has been closed due to safety concerns.

Officials with the park service say the house will likely reopen before the end of the month.
