ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Albany fire investigators are still trying to determine what sparked a fire in a vacant south Albany home Monday morning.

Neighbors called 911 a little after ten o'clock after they saw smoke coming from 823 West Mercer Avenue.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the small fire. They say it's suspicious because there's no electricity running to the house.

"Electricity was cut to the house, there's no meter and the weather head that the wires run to was cut going to it," said Albany Fire Department Battalion Chief Keith Ambrose.

Firefighters say getting inside the home was easy because the door was unlocked. They say there were some small pieces of furniture scattered about the house.
