Fire destroys East Residence home

December 15, 2004

Albany -- An Albany woman and her two sons escape from a burning house. Alfredia Mackroy says her sons awoke her just before one Wednesday morning.

Their house on East Residence was in flames, a fire apparently caused by an electrical problem in the laundry room.

Mackroy said "I think everything is gone. There is so much sentimental values here, because we grew up here. This is 48 years, a family house. This has really hurt me now."

Mackroy said she and her sons will stay with family, while they rebuild.
