This morning a fire destroyed a home here in Hyde Park, NY on Roosevelt Road at approximately 3:30am. The homeowners were alerted by a smoke detector sounding and when they awoke to find smoke in the residence, they dialed DC911 to summon the Roosevelt Fire District which responded and found a fire between the walls in the front of the residence. The fire department called a second alarm to bring additional resources and personnel to the scene to assist.
The fire was contained to the front greenhouse room and wall, but smoke damage is throughout the whole house. Roosevelt FD was assisted on scene by Fairview and Pleasant Valley, as well as an EMS unit from Mobile Life Support Services. The fire is under investigation by the Dutchess County Department of Emergency Response Fire Investigation Team. The road was closed between Roe Dr. and Putnam Rd. while the fire dept. operated on scene, the scene was cleared about 6:30am.
