ALBION – A dryer fire filled an apartment house with smoke tonight at 120 West State St. Firefighters put out the fire, which didn’t cause much damage to the house owned by Chris Kinter.

Firefighters from Albion and Barre were called to the scene at about 9:30 p.m., and encoutnered lots of smoke coming from the building. They also removed clothes that were on fire from the dryer.
