Structure Fire on Old Lucas Turnpike June 10, 2021
Thursday, June 10th, 2021

BLOOMINGTON, N.Y. — A fire that damaged a stone house in this town of Rosendale hamlet probably was the result of renovation work being done there, the Bloomington fire chief said Monday.

Joe Hafner Jr. said the fire began in the attic of the home at 35 Old Lucas Turnpike about 10 p.m. Thursday, June 10, and that the owner and workers were inside at the time. By the time firefighters arrived, flames had shot through the wooden roof, the chief said.

There were no injuries, he said.

Hafner said more than 40 firefighters from the Rosendale, Kingston, town of Ulster, High Falls and Cottekill departments battled the blaze.
