Fire erupts in empty house on Valentine Avenue

Flames ripped through the roof of 1606 Valentine Avenue early Thursday.

Albany Arson Investigator Sam Harris was called out to a fire that looks to have been intentionally set just after 1AM.

Crews were able to get the fire under control within 30 minutes.

A tenant just moved out of the residence tuesday so no one was inside at the time of the fire.

It's still unknow how much structure damage the home suffered.

If you know anything about this fire or others set call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
