ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It looks like crews have already started the demolition process after a fire erupted in Albany on Wednesday.
NEWS10ABC reports that the fire broke out Wednesday afternoon around 1 p.m. Firefighters say it started in the back of 233 and quickly spread down the row to the neighboring buildings 231 and 229.
Fire was seen shooting through the roofs and moving so fast that firefighters were evacuated and told to only fight it from outside because it was too dangerous.
Good news is – everyone got out OK, including pets and no injuries were reported, but at least two dozen people are without a home. The Red Cross is helping them out.
There’s no word yet on how this fire started, but there is a press conference taking place on Thursday, so NEWS10ABC hopes to get some answers there.
This is the third major fire the City of Albany has seen in as many weeks.
