Apartment fire spotted by girls

December 16, 2003
Albany- A few school girls helped prevent fire damage at Pinnacle West Apartments on Westover Road.

They were getting off the school bus when they spotted smoke coming out of a window and alerted the office.

"It was just smoke then, but by the time we got down to the office and back here it was flaming real heavy," said 12-year-old Raven Washington.

The tenant is in the process of moving out but lost everything in the room. Firefighters kept the blaze from spreading to other units. They don't yet know what caused the fire.
