Rensselaer County Sheriffs are turning to the public for help finding the person responsible for starting a fire in the Town of Schaghticoke.

Police say a 911 call was placed just after 7:00 p.m. Friday for a barn fire on Fisherman’s Lane. The caller was able to put out the fire before the fire department got there. There were no reported injuries and the damage to the barn was minor.

Witnesses said they saw a black two door Volvo with tinted windows drive past the barn several times prior to the fire. Anyone who has information or knows who was driving the Volvo is urged to contact Sheriff’s Investigators at (518) 266-1981.
