Rachel Ray’s upstate New York mansion destroyed



Drone footage reveals the extent of the devastation after a fire at television host and celebrity cook Rachael Ray’s upstate New York home.

While much of the building remains standing, a massive proportion of the mansion went up in flames with most of the roof completely destroyed.

Most of the damage was to the second floor of the home and the roof. Ceilings caved in and water damage occurred after firefighters tackled the blaze but much of the first floor is still intact.

Remarkably, despite the ferocity of the blaze Ray’s high-end kitchen managed to survived the fire that ripped through her mansion, as she confirmed that she and her family are safe.

Ray, 51, was at home in Lake Luzerne, New York, with her husband John Cusimano, 52, and their dog Bella when the fire broke out shortly before 5:30 pm Sunday.

They all escaped unhurt and are now staying with neighbors. LaFlure said they managed to rescue several valuable pieces from the home with the help of staff and firefighters.

 Ray tweeted her thanks to the firefighters who battled to save her home for several hours
