It seems like the Albany Area has been plagued with one fire after another this winter season. Now, a very popular restaurant in the Albany Area has burned to the ground.

The Villa Valenti in Wynanstkill caught fire on Tuesday Night, January 14.  Click here for updates. According to John Gray at Fox23 News this looks like it could be a total loss. Sadly, quite a few fires have taken homes and businesses this year including Augie's, Dunkin' Donuts in Malta, and the Burnt Hills Bowling Alley.
