ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Firefighters set a dilapidated house on fire Tuesday to train fire investigators to detect arson.

 Firefighters and trucks surrounded the condemned home on Mulberry Avenue as they set the fire. 

Several firefighters videotaped the fire. They'll use that video later this week as part of a fire investigator course being taught in Albany. South Georgia law enforcers and firefighters will go to the house to try to determine what started the fire.

Arson investigators and firefighters from across South Georgia will be in Albany this weekend for the state certified investigation course. Firefighters will continue to training with three more house burns this week.

All the homes were ordered by a judge to be cleared.
