Fire Closes Schenectady's Stockade Inn

Schenectady's Stockade Inn will be closed for a while after a Thursday afternoon fire damaged part of the restaurant and hotel.

The smoky fire resulted in the evacuation of guests and staff, and one firefighter was treated for minor injuries.

Firefighters say the kitchen sustained quite a bit of damage, and crews with chain saws could be seen working on the roof of the building.

There is some smoke, heat and water damage to the two story building.

No neighboring buildings were affected, and no word yet on a cause.
