ALBANY - Forty-eight people who live on Bradford Street in Albany were working to salvage their belongings on Monday.
Their row of houses is coming down after a Sunday fire.
Investigators say the fire was caused by an "accidental, unidentified electrical event."
The Red Cross is now helping the 48 people who live on the block. Some say they plan to rebuild right there.
Hear from some of the displaced residents by watching the video of John Craig's story.
