ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany firefighters responded to a structure fire on the 1900 block of South Riverview Circle around 1:30 p.m.

Firefighters said a 15-year-old boy and his 1-year-old and 3-year-old brothers were in the home when the fire broke out. 

The 15-year-old was cooking on the stove, then left to go check on his 1-year-old brother. 

The food on the stove then caught on fire.

Firefighters said the 15-year-old and 1-year-old ran out of the home, forgetting the 3-year-old was still inside. 

A neighbor called 911, and ran inside of the home to get the 3-year-old. 

The 3-year-old was airlifted to a Macon Hospital, according to Dougherty Co. EMS officials.
