ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Albany Firefighters were busy Tuesday afternoon fighting a house fire on Hardup Road.

Fire officials believe the fire started in the attic. Three units, including an arial truck, were called to the fire around 5:30 p.m.

As the rain poured down, firefighters were able to get the blaze under control in less than twenty minutes and no one was hurt.

"That's why we always do a primary search which is a quick search before we start putting out the fire to make sure no one is inside then we go back and do a thorough search and they search every nook and cranny," said Albany Fire Department Battalion Chief, Marty leverett.

The homeowner was not home at the time and no one was hurt. Fire crews are investigating whether the fire was electrical or sparked by lightning.
