ALBANY, Ore. Burglars looted a man s home in Albany just three days after a fire forced him and his young daughter out.

The fire broke out at 24-year-old Spencer Kernats home on the south end of Albany Monday afternoon. It started in his chimney and quickly spread upstairs.

Kernats grabbed his two-year-old daughter and made it out of the home unharmed. But on Friday, thieves propped a ladder against the home and climbed through a second-story window, police said.

Kernats said the thieves stole hundreds of dollars worth of electronics including two computers and a gaming system.

How s it make you feel stealing from people who are already down? Kernats said he would tell the thieves if he ever met them.

Police said it s not uncommon for thieves to target homes after fires, floods, or even deaths. Anyone with information about the robbery was urged to call Albany police.
