Fire destroys a Habitat house

July 23, 2004

Albany -A Habitat house in South Albany was gutted by fire today.  A neighbor called firefighters after spotting smoke at the house on Forsyth Street. It's in the Woodland Oak subdivsion.

Habitat for Humanity built the house three years ago for Jennifer Kelley. She says she wasn't home when the fire started.   Kelly said, "I had left a friend here and I was concerned that he was in the house but they said he wasn't in the house." 

The electricity had been turned off in the house for non-payment. The fire caused about 35-thousand dollars worth of damage. Investigators still don't know what caused it.
