Firefighters to burn condemned home Monday

Posted: Updated:

Albany Firefighters will be burning another condemned home Monday morning and they want surrounding residents to be aware. 

Firefighters burned two homes on Friday.  And Monday at 8:30am they'll burn a home at 1212 Avalon Avenue.

Code enforcers asked firefighters to burn these homes to remove the blighted properties. Firefighters use the burnings as a controlled environment for training.

Firefighters urge people in those areas with asthma or breathing difficulties to stay indoors with their windows and doors closed.
