Fire started by three year old

May 31, 2007

Albany -- A three year old Albany boy playing with the stove set his family's apartment on fire.

The fire department was called about 6:30 last evening to this apartment in the 300 block of Mercer Avenue.

Firefighters say Kim Miller's three year old son turned all four eyes on the stove on, before the family left.  It overheated and sparked a blaze that burned most of the kitchen, with smoke damaging the rest of the apartment. The damage was estimated at $5000.

The unit is part of the Albany Housing Authority, which will relocate the family.
