ALBANY, N.Y. – Fire crews are on the scene of an early
morning fire in Albany.

Crews received a call around 4:15 a.m. Friday for a fire at
629 Third St.

Responders had a hard time getting close to the fire because
of the snow. The fire chief said hydrants were buried under snow, and crews had
to shovel them out.

The building on fire was a garage and poor construction
forced crews to battle the blaze from the outside.

The chief said responders were able to take the roof off the
building to help ventilate the building.
