Albany -- An Albany man is charged with trying to burn down his boarding house while others were inside.   Police say 24-year-old Terrence Brown poured gasoline inside a room of the house at 710 9th Avenue around midnight, and set it on fire.

No one was injured, all five people in the house got out okay, but Investigators say Brown was trying to hurt them.   

"Definitely," said Albany Fire Chief James Carswell. "He knew they were inside and he used gasoline to ignite the fire, which caused a fast spreading fire. Ultimately we're very thankful that nobody did lose their life last night."  

The house sustained more than $50,000 in fire damage. Brown's charged with arson and aggravated assault.
