ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

Albany Firefighters continue to investigate a Thursday morning fire that burned an 87-year old woman's home.

Firefighters say the blaze destroyed half of Nettie Willis's home on 16th Avenue just after midnight yesterday.

Willis had been out of town for three weeks.

Investigators went back to the scene today looking for clues to the cause.

Deputy Chief Ron Rowe said "Still could have been electrical, as the initial officer on the scene thinks it is. But it's our job to be thorough and make sure that that is what it is."

Firefighters estimate the fire did 40-thousand dollars damage to the home.
