Two Albany homes burn because of cooking fires

August 18, 2003

Albany -- A couple of Albany homes burn this weekend, because people forgot food cooking on the stove.

A house in the 500 block of Vintage Road was heavily damaged by fire in the kitchen, dining room, and living room. After 11 O-clock Saturday night Albany Firefighters were called. The homeowner, Nicholas Forde, said he left food cooking on the stove, and discovered the fire when he saw smoke pouring out of the windows. Fire damage was estimated at over 50-thousand dollars.

Meanwhile, a duplex in the 300 block of Talafax Road sustained over ten thousand dollars in fire and smoke damage early Sunday morning. About 12:20, firefighters responded to a kitchen fire at the South Albany home.

 Lena Smith said she also left food cooking on the stove, which caught fire. No one was injured in either fire.
