A fire broke out at 484 Clinton Avenue in Albany overnight. Maria Valvanis is at the scene with details.

ALBANY, N.Y.-- Fire crews are on the scene of a fire at 484 Clinton Avenue in Albany.

It broke out around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Family Deli and Grocery and traveled up the building before spreading to 482 Clinton Avenue.

Residents living above the deli, as well as in 482, 480, and some of the buildings around the corner on Robin Street were all evacuated.

No one was injured.

There's no word yet on what caused the fire, but because of the old structure of the buildings involved the chief says the fire was difficult for his crews to get out.

Chief Warren Abriel said, "They're older buildings, they're well constructed, they're double walls. The siding is like one inch by six, so very cut to cut through. The roof was a double roof on 482, so that made it difficult to cut a ventilation hole."

Parts of Judson Street, Clinton Avenue and Robin Street are still blocked off. The Chief expects to have the area cleared within the next few hours.
