North Albany House Fire

The Albany Fire Department responded Wednesday morning to a fire at a house in North Albany — a house where a separate fire had broken out the previous night.

Sandy Roberts, spokesperson for the department, said the house's residents were not home for the Wednesday fire, but a neighbor saw smoke and called 911.

Fire personnel were dispatched at 10:13 a.m. to the house, at 3030 Flame Tree Lane NW, and the fire was extinguished shortly after 10:30, Roberts said.

More than 20 fire department personnel responded to the blaze, along with a ladder truck and three fire engines, she said. No one was injured in the fire or response, she said.

Roberts said the department extinguished a separate fire at the house shortly after 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Fire inspectors were on scene Wednesday trying to determine the blaze's cause. As of 4:30 p.m., according to Roberts, the Albany Police Department has taken over the investigation.

"It's not a usual thing for us to be on multiple structure fires in a 12-hour period," she said.

Roberts said the homeowners and their dog were displaced by the second fire, but had a place to stay.
