AFD battles house blaze

AFD battles house blaze

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany fire crews were called out to a house fire at 1609 Smith Court. The blaze broke out sometime before 7:30 Thursday morning.

Smoke was seen billowing out of the roof, a witness tells WALB flames were also seen shooting out the windows.

The home was vacant when the fire erupted, and Albany has seen many such fires in vacant houses.

We will have  more details from the Albany Fire Department's inspector later today.
