Electrical fires at Culinary Institute of America cause temporary shut down
Thu. Mar 14th 2019

On this date, Roosevelt FD was dispatched to the Culinary Institute of America for report of automatic alarm of fire, with report of active fire in 2 buildings. By the end of the alarm,  multiple agencies would end up responding to the CIA to assist Roosevelt FD with investigation and search of buildings for occupants. 

It is confirmed that there was fires in 2 buildings and smoke in couple others.The cause of the issues was a tree that was fell onto electrical lines by a contractor at the old HRPC property about a mile south of the CIA on Rt. 9 that took down primary electrical lines, causing for a lose of partial electricity to the campus that in turn cause an electrical shortage and fires in the buildings. Fires were out on arrival of the fire dept. personnel, but there was smoke conditions which needed to be vented and each building needed to be searched for fire and anyone still in them to be removed to safety outside of the building till the incident was cleared by FD.

During the incident Roosevelt FD and Administration and Security of the CIA was assisted by personnel and units from the Fairview and City of Poughkeepsie FD on scene, as well as personnel and expertise from NYS OFPC, Dutchess County Dept. of Emergency Response and Central Hudson Gas & Electric Co. Manpower and equipment from Pleasant Valley, Rhinebeck and Hyde Park Fire Depts. were on stand-by to cover any other alarms in the area.

No injuries or deaths were reported during this incident and the FD cleared the scene within about an hour and half.
