Fatal fire in Schenectady: One year later
SCHENECTADY -- It was one year ago today a fire tore through a home in Schenectady.
Three children and their father lost their lives, and police are still trying to find who was responsible.
The fire at 438 Hulett Street was deliberately set according to state and federal investigators and that makes this a murder investigation.
Robert Butler, a former boyfriend of the children's mother, was arrested on a federal complaint and charged with arson. He was accused of throwing gasoline on the stairs and setting them on fire.
But those charges were later dropped and there are rewards totaling $12,000 still available for information that leads to an arrest.
