ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany Firefighters found copper wire burning behind a central Albany home, and they're trying to figure out where it came from.

Someone driving by saw smoke behind this home in the 100 block of North Cleveland Street about 10:30.

Firefighters put out a fire in a barrel and saw that it was copper wiring. They also found two other piles of burned wire and called Police to investigate. 

"Based upon that they were different size gauges of wiring, we decided we needed to notify the Albany Police Department, in case it was recovered property from a previous theft," said Inv. Sam Harris of the Albany Fire Department.

Police did not make any arrests, but Code Enforcement cited Jamie Keith for having three junk vehicles in the yard.
