Body found in Schenectady home demolition

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) – Workers demolishing a fire-damaged house in Schenectady have found a body in the debris.

It wasn't immediately clear if the person was a victim of a suspicious Dec. 10 fire who went undiscovered in searches of the three-story building in Schenectady.

A WRGB-TV crew on the scene says the body was covered by a white sheet Friday afternoon.

The Times Union of Albany says police officials confirm they're investigating the discovery. The newspaper says one of its reporters was contacted Thursday by someone who said his brother
had been missing since the fire, information it says was forwarded to authorities.

The Times Union reports a woman who escaped the burning building has been questioned about the blaze.
