ALBION – Firefighters work to put out a fire at 140 South Clinton St. in the Village of Albion this evening.

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at 7:43 p.m. Dark smoke was spewing into the air.

A two-family house wasn’t damaged by the fire, but residents were evacuated as a precautionary measure. No one was injured in the blaze.

One of the residents was working on a motor vehicle in the garage when the fire started, a neighbor said. The fire is under investigation.

Barre firefighters are at a backyard on West Academy Street, making sure the fire doesn’t spread to other structures.

Firefighters check hot spots from the fire in the garage.
