Building at car dealership burns

January 13, 2003

Albany --Homeless people trying to stay warm are being blamed for a fire that destroyed a building at an Albany car dealership.

A garage building at the back of Moree Motors at 500 West Ogelthorpe Avenue burned around midnight Sunday.

 7 cars and the building were destroyed. Investigators say a number of homeless people had been staying in the building, and a fire they were using for heat and light started the blaze.

 Owners say the fire caused 55-thousand dollars in damage.
