ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Four people are displaced after their East Albany home was heavily damaged by fire Friday night.

The Albany Fire Department responded to the house fire just after 7 p.m. in the 1500 block of Rena Avenue.

Firefighters said it appears the blaze started in the back part of the house.

The cause of the fire is still undetermined, but firefighters suspect it could be electrical.

Utility crews were also on the scene of the fire to cut power to the home as crews as firefighters battled the blaze.

None of the four people who lived in the house were home when the fire broke out.

The Red Cross has been brought in to help them while they are displaced.

Firefighters said they will have to return to the burned home on Monday to dig through the rubble in the daylight to determine the cause of the fire.
