Roof partially caves in from Albany fire

A building’s roof in Albany partially caved in during a fire on Monday afternoon.

The fire broke out around 1 p.m. in the 100 block of South Allen Street.

Firefighters pulled up to heavy smoke and flames coming from the second floor.

Deputy Chief Joseph Toomey says the fire was harder to put out because of the way the building sits behind another building, deep on the lot.

He also said heavy fire extended from the back of the building, into the second floor and roof.
