ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Just before two o'clock Wednesday, firefighters responded to the house at 208 5th Avenue.

An electrical outlet with a window unit air conditioner had a short in it and started the fire.

Most of the fire was contained in a front room, though there was smoke and water damage throughout.

No one was at home when the fire started, but the owner spotted the fire and called 911.
