Albany -- A 46 year old Albany man is arrested for setting an abandoned duplex on fire Monday night.

Carl Lloyd, who Fire Investigators describe as a vagrant, is charged with arson.

Fire Investigators say Lloyd admits he was cooking food on the floor of the abandoned duplex at 731 Byron Road, when the fire spread out of control. Firefighters say there were several vagrants using the dilapidated building for shelter, but none was hurt in the blaze.

 Firefighters say they have to enter every structure fire as if there were victims in it. With cold weather coming and the danger of more fires set by vagrants, firefighters hope people will report transients in buildings where they should not be. Deputy Chief David Eddins said "we don't know what we are going to be met with. Hopefully the word will get out and the people in the neighborhood will start paying a little more attention and start reporting."

Firefighters put the damage of the duplex fire at $20,000.
