SCHENECTADY - The Schenectady Arson Task Force is investigating a fire on Eagle Street last Friday.

They are trying to locate 39-year-old Derek LaButta of Schenectady to talk to him about that fire.


If you know where he is or can reach out to him, have him contact the Schenectady Fire Department.

When firefighters got to 8 Eagle Street, flames were shooting out of the roof. That roof collapsed a short time later.

No one was living there and the gas and electric service were shut off, so investigators are trying to figure out what could have started the fire.
