Albany-- A suspicious fire destroys the back room of an Albany store. The Albany Rescue Mission Store on Roosevelt Avenue sustained heavy fire damage to the rear of the building this morning, along with a significant amount of water damage to items in the front of the store.

Mission leaders say the store provides a large amount of the funding for the mission located at 604 North Monroe Street. The Mission hopes you will continue to donate.

"Were still open for business, we wanted to let everyone know that were going to operate out of our other location here until we get this repaired" said

The Albany Rescue Mission will still be receiving donations in a building adjacent to the mission store on Roosevelt Avenue. Mission leaders hope their insurance will cover the fire damage, so they can continue to operate at that location. The Albany Fire Department continues to investigate the fire.
