Burnt Hills Lanes Bowling Alley Burns Down

By Staff Report | Local News
BURNT HILLS — Burnt Hills Lanes went up in flames early Sunday. The bowling alley, which was built in 1959, contained 24 lanes, a recreation center and a snack bar. All that was left after firefighters put out the flames was charred remains. The building is a total loss, officials said. No one was injured in the fire, but the large flames were, at the time, a threat to nearby apartments. It took fire crews three hours and 1 million gallons of water to completely put out the blaze on the structure. Burnt Hills Lanes was shuttered in the fall of 2010, after being taken over by the bank that held the financing on the property. At that time, it was purchased by Michael and Tara Saccia. The Saccia’s renovated the alley with the new snack bar facility, scoring system, new lanes and a new roof. It was also the place where 1,900 students from Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School could be seen active during physical education class per year, along with being home to the Spartans varsity bowling team.
