ALBANY, GA (WALB) –New information into Albany city officials investigation of a home day care business that was destroyed by fire Tuesday. The victim does have a state day care license and city business license, and proved it.

Monique Evans showed us her Albany business license and her Bright from the Start state day care license Wednesday afternoon. She dug them out of the debris in her home, which burned in an early morning fire. Firefighters Tuesday could not find any record of her having a local business license, and started an investigation. Evans wanted to prove she had obtained licenses to be a legitimate home day care operation.

Evans said  "I'm not upset. If anything, it could be a misunderstanding from either side. I'm not upset. I just wanted to clear my name and to let other people know that I was really true about taking care of their children. And that I had the proper license to do so."

Firefighters say Evans applied for a change of address for her business license in June, and that action technically voided her business license at the city treasurer's office. That led to the license not showing a computer search. While Evans has the city and state licenses for her business, that operation burned in the fire, along with the family's belongings.

If you would like to help the Evans family, you can contact New Vision Ministries on West Highland Avenue at 485-1135.
