The old Doane Stuart School in the area of Mt. Hope Drive in Albany appears to be a total loss, Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said. The fire broke out Thursday evening, with all areas of the building involved. A steeple on the building has collapsed, said the mayor, with more collapses expected. Route 9W at Corning Hill is closed in that area. Meantime, it is still way too early to determine a cause. “At this point, our investigators can’t even get into where they would need to be to investigate this fire,” Sheehan said. She said the state will be helping with the investigation.
