NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. -- A home in New Windsor is destroyed after the garage caught fire on Friday afternoon.
According to the Vails Gate Fire Chief, the house on Independence Drive was engulfed in flames when crews arrived to the scene. He said the home was a total loss.
"The biggest problem was the exposures. There is a house next to it and behind it that are relatively close. They suffered damage from the heat but nothing significant, just melted siding. The original fire was completely involved, so there was no saving that. So we wanted to make sure it didn't spread to anything else," explained Vails Gate Fire Chief Chris Sweeney.
No word on what caused the fire. Fortunately, nobody was injured.
