ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman and her teenaged son lost their home in a fire Tuesday night.

Just after 6:00PM, fire swept through their home on Samford Avenue, in Southeast Albany.

Firefighters say it started on the stove, and  caused more than $50,000 worth of damage.

Shimona Wright and her 15-year-old son Christopher got out OK, but lost everything. Her son, a Westover High Student, lost all his school supplies and clothes.

If you would like to help this family and other fire victims, you can contact the American Red Cross.
