      Albany Fire Department battles afternoon fire

      It may be 95 degrees outside, but that isn't stopping the Albany Fire Department from fighting a fire in the 100 block of Kirkland Street.

      A relative of the homeowner said they all walked out for a minute and the next thing they know, smoke is coming from the house. They said this is the homeowner's second house fire.

      They currently have four fire trucks on scene and have laid lines. Smoke appears to be coming out of the top of the house.
