ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Firefighters were called out to a south Albany neighborhood where a house went up in flames. Neighbors spotted fire coming from a house at 517 Odum Avenue around 3 o'clock Tuesday morning and called 911.
The home, which was presumed vacant, had no electricity running to it but officials say people were inside when the fire started.
Firefighters found the one story home about 50 percent involved when they arrived. They quickly went to work knocking down the flames and began a search and rescue to determine if anyone was still inside.
The occupants did make it out but investigators are looking into how many people were in the home and what they were doing there as they search for a cause.
"We had a lot of fire inside the house. We came in and quickly attacked it. We had three engine companies and an aerial company here. Right now we're in the process of digging around in there and determining what the cause of the fire was," said Albany Fire Captain Daniel Potter.
The house sustained smoke and fire damage but luckily didn't spread to any neighboring homes. No one was hurt, but one woman was treated by EMS at the scene and given oxygen.
She tells us off camera that she and three other people were inside the house at the time of the fire and that she had jump out of a window, but was unsure as to how the blaze started.
