ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Firefighters are investigating a fire that burned a vacant East Albany home, and it's not the first time that it has burned.

Firefighters were called to a blaze at 208 Cone Street about midnight. Arson investigators say clothing was set on fire inside the home, sparking the blaze.

They suspect vagrants living in the house set the fire.  Firefighters put out a similar fire there last year.

Investigators are trying to find the people responsible.  If you have any information call the Albany Fire Department at 431-3262, or CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.  You could earn a reward.
