Albany family displaced by fire

January 30, 2007

Albany -- Fire destroys the apartment of an East Albany family of five.  

 The kitchen of this home in the 1500 block of Georgia Avenue was gutted by a grease fire just after 7PM Monday night.

Cora McCray, her three children, and one grandchild escaped without injury, but now they will have to move. McCray said "this is not able to be lived in, due to safety reasons. They killed the power and all. So it's just not able to be lived in. There is smoke damage throughout the house."

 The apartment is owned by the Greater Second Mt. Olive Church. The Red Cross put McCray and her family up in a hotel since the fire.

McCray says she will live with other family members until she can find a new home.
