Schenectady firefighters battle a house fire on Eastern Avenue on April 17, 2024, after multiple calls shortly after 2300. Upon arrival, the house, which was vacant and under rehabilitation, had the roof completely involved and threatening homes on the B and D sides. Two tower ladders were put into operation to prevent the fire from spreading. The house was a total loss and was torn down the following day.
