Firefighters battle house fire

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany fire crews spent several hours fighting a large house fire Sunday evening.

“We proceeded to do an interior attack the fire spread into the attic we pulled ceilings and got into the attic and the fire spread from one side of the attic and all the way throughout the house and got well ahead of us,” said Battalion Chief Keith Ambrose.
