ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An East Albany home was heavily damaged by fire Wednesday morning.

Just after 11 a.m., firefighters were called to Meadow Lane in the Cromartie Beach area. Three people were in the home at the time of the fire but got out okay. Firefighters say that the fire started from food on a stove and quickly spread throughout the house.

"We had three stations respond, and then, of course, we had our on call called back in, they responded. Roughly we had, about 15 folks on the scene out here," said Capt. Keith Ambrose of the Albany Fire Department.

Firefighters were able to respond within a few minutes to the fire, getting it under control quickly and saving the home next door.
