ALBANY - You may have seen a cloud of black smoke rising over Downtown Albany Monday afternoon.

The cloud was part of a fire inside the Albany Auto Parts Garage on Spruce Street.

The fire chief says workers were removing a gas tank from a vehicle when it exploded.

Everyone got out of the building safely.

The fire was quickly brought under control.
