Fire in Schenectady Displaces Residents

A fire that happened on April 10, 2018, in Schenectady, New York, displaced residents of an apartment building. Residents of the building that was located on Albany Street had to flee from the fire. It appears that no injuries have been reported.

The fire happened at around 7:30 at night at 864 Albany Street. Smoke was in the building and firefighters were called, and they had to help some residents out of the building. This information comes from Assistant Fire Chief Michael Gillespie.

The Red Cross arrived and helped residents by offering them accommodations for the night.

Firefighters said the fire started in the basement and that it took about half an hour to bring the fire under control.

The cause of the blaze is still being investigated.
