Two families are homeless after an early morning kitchen fire broke out in an apartment in Albany.
Firefighters say a sprinkler system kept the fire from spreading throughout the 3 storey building on Trinity Place.
No one was injured, but smoke and electric damage to the home forced out a family of two adults and a 3-year-old, plus a single adult. The Red Cross is helping the two families.
Officials say they had the fire knocked down in 15 minutes, thanks in part to the sprinklers. They do not believe it was suspicious.
