A house on Spencer Drive in Red Hook was heavily damaged by a late night fire.
Upon arrival last night at the site off of Route 9, Red Hook firefighters found heavy smoke and fire in the front of the building. Two residents and their pet dog escaped from the home. A firefighter and a resident were taken to Northern Dutchess Hospital for evaluation. Investigators found that the electrical fire was accidental starting on the front porch.
“Red Hook was assisted in firefighting efforts and EMS support by volunteers from Milan, Tivoli, Livingston, Clermont, Rhinebeck, and Rhinecliff, with Pine Plains on standby. NDP and the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office also were on scene.”
