Early morning fire sends one person to the hospital

October 30, 2007

Albany -- An early morning fire forces two people to evacuate their apartments in central Albany today.

The fire started just before 5:00 AM at 704 West Highland Avenue. The Albany Fire Department arrived on the scene shortly after.

Firefighters say the small fire started inside a room of an apartment that belonged to a disabled man.

A neighbor who lives in the second apartment, next door to where the fire started, said the elderly man had just moved into his new home on Friday.

The man was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, but there were no other injuries.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
