AFD puts out storage shed fire

ALBANY, GA - (WALB) -

An East Albany homeowner's backyard structure goes up in flames,  and firefighters don't know the cause. Firefighters were called to 1313 Mobile Avenue just after 1:00 p.m. Monday.

 The 16 by 20 shed in the 1300  block of Mobile Avenue is a complete loss.  Firefighters went through the wreckage to see if they could find any clues what caused the fire.

Former firefighter Ralph Paustian owns the home.  He was inside preparing it for rental and didn't know his shed was on fire until firefighters showed up.  

  "I was inside cleaning up and heard the fire training.  Walked outside.  And the building was one fire.  So I really don't know," he said.  

There was no power to the shed, and the shed was empty.
