Crews continue to clean Jay Street rubble

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Crews are still cleaning up the rubble left form the Jay Street fire in Schenectady.

A massive fire broke out around 2 a.m. on March 6 displacing around 60 people and killing four. Mayor Gary McCarthy said the Red Cross, Schenectady County Social Services and other groups continue to help those displaced by the devastating fire.

Meanwhile, work continues to help the businesses affected.

“Most of the buildings are down, and they’re hauling the materials offsite,” McCarthy said. “We’re working with some of the adjacent businesses that were affected to minimize their inconvenience.”

Some of the businesses remain closed. McCarthy said Metroplex continues to work on putting together packages to help affected businesses return to normalcy.
