When crews arrived, first responders reported the fire was coming from the first-floor windows in the back corner of the house.

The Albion Department of Public Safety says that even though the fire was extinguished quickly, the house sustained fire, water and heavy smoke damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials don’t believe it to be suspicious at this time.
