ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Firefighters are investigating a fire at WestWood Apartments. No one was hurt during the fire.

However firefighters evacuated two apartments because of heavy smoke damage. Albany Firefighters responded to 2010 West Broad, apartment 161, shortly before 2:30.

After arriving, they immediately went to work putting out the flames. We're told the fire started in the wall behind the ac unit.

Firefighters had to tear down the wall and ceiling just to put out the flames. Right now, it's being labeled an electrical fire.

"When it gets cold the heaters are pulling in more. It's always a good thing to have your heating systems checked out. Basically when it's an electrical fire, it's an accident. You can't really predict those," said Battalion Chief Keith Ambrose.

It took firefighters 30 minutes to have everything under control. Apartment 161 and 162 had to be evacuated because of heavy smoke damage.
