Rachael Ray Loses Her Entire Home to a Devastating Fire

We know Rachael Ray as someone who can really fire up a good meal in the kitchen, but we never expect the kitchen to actually catch on fire.

The celebrity chef and talk show host has endured a terrible fire at her home in upstate New York. Thankfully, she, her husband, and their dog are all safe and sound. The home? Not so much. Unfortunately, they lost everything.

She posted a tweet to let all her fans know that they managed to escape the blaze unscathed. “Thank you to our local first responders for being kind and gracious and saving what they could of our home,” she wrote. “Grateful that my mom, my husband, my dog… we’re all okay.”

Everyone was able to get out of the house quickly and safely. There weren’t even any injuries. Their home and belongings are a different story, however. Ray wasn’t even able to save her phone, as she tweeted to anyone reaching out to her via calls or texts that it wasn’t something she could answer right away.

The cause of the house fire is still under investigation. “Right now, we’re in the process of determining what the cause may be,” said Brian LaFleure, Warren County director of emergency services and fire coordinator. “It’s nothing suspicious, but we’re looking to determine what the cause was.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Ray was filming her cooking show from home, so not only is her home and all her memories gone, she needs to find a new spot to work.

Still, she has a very positive outlook on the whole thing. “These are the days we all have to be grateful for what we have, not what we’ve lost,” Ray said.

Amen! We couldn’t agree more, though if this happened to us, we can’t imagine we’d be so positive. We’re just glad everyone was able to get out of there safely.
